East meets West in the Ikebana exhibition at Ottica Urbani

On the occasion of the Homo Faber Event, Ottica Urbani and Ikebana Ohara Chapter Venice are joining forces to organise an ikebana exhibition. The small display will be in the historic windows of the Urbani store in Frezzeria, close to St Mark’s Square. It perfectly illustrates the unique connection between East and West made of harmony, beauty and simplicity. The floral compositions, arranged in Murano glass vases – designed and made especially by UrbaniDesign – will be displayed along with the unique creations of Ottica Urbani: handcrafted glasses, ironic and innovative pieces, where design, experimentation and craftsmanship meet the personality.
