Mr Noritaka Noda studied graphic design in Japan and in the United States. Being inspired with the use of dried flowers in his projects, he began to be interested in designing using fresh floral materials – leading him to study Japanese floral design (Ikebana) and western floral design in New York and Japan. Nori’s floral design business has flourished beautifully due to his creativity, talent and unique design skills. His clientele includes a number of American and Japanese corporations, restaurants, retail, private events, museums, etc. Several times a year, his assignments take him to locations around the US, Europe and the Caribbean. As a professor of Ikebana, he conducts many demonstrations and teaches classes at the Nippon Club.
