Suspended fur tree by Azuma Makoto

Inside the mega fendi ginza store in tokyo, japanese flower artist azuma makoto has suspended a sculptural ‘fur tree’ from the ceiling of the pop-up boutique. The botanical art piece is exhibited above visitors, towering overhead shoppers and passersby. Makoto has carefully sculpted the central trunk from an eclectic mix of mediums like moss and bark that add a hyperrealistic quality to the piece. Rather than flowers or leaves growing from the branches, a colorful range of fendi’s signature fur balls don the tree limbs. Blue and green puffs are attached to each of the extremities, forming a surreal landscape that blends nature and couture.
