Beginning of GIYOU in dates and images
September 1, 2022
An idea is born to create flowers for modern people and elevate the custom of giving; to preserve the grace and tradition of giving live flowers and add something new; to combine a flower with a gift into one object; and to create new experiences which would straddle the line between jewellery and applied art, gardening, history and philosophy. Despite ancient attempts to depict flowers, the flowers we have in mind surprisingly do not exist anywhere in the world. Which only makes our wish to create them stronger.
We study various flowers, work techniques , history of flowers and the custom of gifting, and think about how to bring the tradition to the next level.
The first task schedules. We work with aluminium, then return to silver and reduce the size of our flowers.
Spring and summer 2020
