Studio Akane Moriyama

Draped Flowers

Studio Akane Moriyama created a curtain which is also a landscape, as fresh flowers picked from the roadside are put in little containers inside pockets of the curtain. The combination of fresh flowers and flexible textile become an ever-changing vertical divider in the space it is hung in, altering its appearance, scent and texture continuously. People choose their favourite flowers to adorn the drapery, which thus become an element of the space. The landscape of the curtain depends on season, location and creator, while its scent, colour and transparency change accordingly.
