Kukido

Living with Nature
the three principles of Kukido

1. To Express Life as is
2. To Appreciate Nature’s Form
3. To Honor the Wild


Kukido, the Way of the Stem, is a novel approach towards floral design ideated by Yuichi Tamaru to promote an organic and local production of plants and flowers and a renewed respect for nature. It expresses itself through a composition which holds the flowers in place and balance: this design emphasises the stems and their natural form. All parts of the flowers are exposed, including the damaged and withered ones.

Kukido won the Good Design Award 2020 in the “Awareness improvement for individual and public” category, thanks to its design approach that enhances the genuine beauty of flowers and nature instead of controlling them to create artificial beauty, making one think about what beauty is.
