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 with the purpose of promoting 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 in balance: this design emphasises the stems and their natural form. All parts of the flowers are exposed, including the damagedand withered ones.
