Florae is a poetic exhibition that highlights the work of Japanese photographer Mika Ninagawa and the creations of Haute Joaillerie Maison Van Cleef & Arpels, who both draw their inspiration from nature, its constant metamorphoses and its singularity. Presented from September 10 to November 14, 2021 at the Hôtel d’Évreux, place Vendôme in Paris, this fascinating display is a blend of senses, creativity, colors and nature.
Within an immersive scenography imagined by architect Tsuyoshi Tane, dahlias, roses and cherry blossoms all seem to come to life thanks to light and mirror effects. In your stroll through this inspiring garden, you’ll discover photographs of floral compositions captured by the talented photographer, as well as jewelry creations of the House placed in discreet vitrines, blending perfectly with the surrounding atmosphere.
Created between the 1920s and the 2000s, more than a hundred pieces from the Van Cleef & Arpels Collection and from contemporary collections offer a wide-ranging view of flowers through three main themes: naturalist aesthetics, bouquets and stylized aesthetics. Finally, in partnership with the École des Arts Joailliers, the exhibition offers unique workshops to create floral jewels.
Address: Hôtel d’Évreux, 19, place Vendôme, 75 001 Paris
