Slow Green Christmas ― Spreading love and kindness
This year, which has been a tough year, let’s make Christmas a more loving and warm holiday for both people and nature, dedicating the beauty and scent of a plant that is sustainable, local and cultivated without the use of pesticides to the most important people in our lives.
By choosing one of our Christmas tree proposals, you can help reduce the number of trees that are cut down during the Christmas period and then thrown away as waste.

The Kukido concept was awarded in the “Awareness improvement for individual and public” category of the Good Design Award 2020!
The Good Design Award is a Japanese comprehensive design evaluation and commendation system.
Many companies and designers from both inside and outside of Japan participate in the activity to enhance the industry or the quality of life through the design.
The judging committee has positively evaluated our design approach because it is a methodology that makes flowers and nature feel beautiful as they are, rather than controlling nature to create artificial beauty. It makes one think about what beauty is.
Kukido, in fact, is a design approach to create a symbiotic relationship with nature by broadening people’s sense of values for flowers and deepening their understanding of nature that surrounds us. Through creative activities of making the flowers stand upright just like in their natural form, you will notice the uniqueness of naturally grown flowers and discover the charm that nature creates.

We have installed seasonal Planter Gardens within our showroom and inside the courtyard of the building in Via Palermo. The concept is that of an “urban oasis where one can experience the four seasons”: a small space to reconnect with nature and relax during work or a stroll. Plants that express the current seasonality, combined with pots by Atelier Vierkant, were selected for both the indoor and outdoor areas.

During the Christmas period, & Other Stories organised a Wreath Pop-up in its shops across Europe: local florists were selected for each shop and set-up a corner with their own Christmas decorations for sale.
Green Wise was chosen for the initiative in Milan. For five days, in the corner of the shop’s entrance in Duomo, you will find original floral wreaths and arrangements which were all hand-made using natural materials.
We are waiting for you!
