UNIVERSO 2023: NATURE AND COSMOS
The UNIVERSE calendar was Harukan's first stationery piece. Haruko's love of nature produced the botanical illustrations, which became the basis for a collection that wants to express the vastness and beauty of the universe where we live. UNIVERSO wants to observe budding, a change in the world that starts from small and fragile things. Nature and space seem grand, endowed with dazzling beauty, but they are born from seeds and dust, small sparks.
The 2023 calendar combines Haruko's illustrations and traditional Japanese patterns with Stefania's design and Western astrological symbols. The zodiac is a tool for looking at the stars through a perspective that has spanned the centuries, nourished by the dialogue between very different cultures and peoples. Not only that, it represents a precious key to understanding and reinterpreting ourselves and our history. Each of us is unique, but also a part of the whole, in time and space. Just like the seeds from which nature blooms.
