    Full Description

    Harijanto Setiawan, an architect by training, gave up his career to pursue a new one: floral design. As a child he already knew the names of all the varieties of flowers in the garden and in elementary school he showed off his flower arranging skills during art classes. Later, by mixing architectural concepts with floral design, he would develop a style so unique that he was noticed worldwide. He worked full-time as a floral designer in various countries for 18 years. The lockdowns due to Covid-19, caused a massive shortage of materials and Harijanto had to abandon his flamboyant design style of the past. Starting from a simple flower stem and leaf, he rediscovered his original passion for architecture. The Zen movement and the minimalist style of Japanese Ikebana inspire his current work. One by one excess elements are removed. Only when nothing more can be removed and the creation still looks beautiful, the arrangement is considered complete. Oddly enough, his designs were not recognised by the official Ikebana associations in Singapore, so he could not give demonstrations under the title modern ‘Ikebana’. Therefore, Harijanto Setiawan decided to name his original style after himself: Haribana.
