Flower and space architect - 花と空間の建築家


When we dropped in for a tea at Café Strøget in Illums of Ikebukuro Seibu Department Store, Mr. Daniel Ost was with a few people at the next table. It was quite possible because he held a “micro cosmos exhibition” here whole this week. Wearing a clean stand-collar shirt and a jacket, he looked more senior than I thought through TV in working outfit. The exhibition was quite packed in rather small space, and this time calla seemed the main feature with an appeal of green and white contrast. I also found some red arrangements were impressive. Near the exit with shop space, Mr. Ost was sitting at a desk offering his autograph for visitors, so we bought his exceptionally expensive book and we had a brief conversation as he signed in my book. The good news is he will have a surprise in Kyoto again next spring.
