"Ikebana" by Matthew Donaldson

Beautifully done and just two minutes long - take a look at this video with Sogetsu ikebana artist Eikou Sumura:

"“Ikebana expresses not only the beauty of flowers,” says the Sogetsu School's Eikou Sumura, who here demonstrates the revered Japanese art of flower arranging. “It also brings out the essential brilliance and vitality contained in every plant.” Tokyo's Sogetsu School is renowned for its contemporary outlook to ikebana, making strikingly balanced displays using branches, blossom, leaves and synthetic materials. To celebrate the inaugural issue of new magazine Modern Design Review, which launches this week during Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, director Matthew Donaldson traveled to the renowned institution to capture ikebana in action."
