The genus name “Centaurea” comes from the Centaurus family of half-man half-horse creatures that appear in Greek mythology. Legends tell of Chiron—a wise man of one such clan said to use plants of this genus to treat wounds. The gold part is the involucres, preserved here as an eternal bud.
Botanical essence: a person with wisdom.
Created by designer Koichi Yoshimura, each Sola cube contains a real plant encapsulated and preserved in resin. Carefully handmade in Japan, each one takes real craftsmanship to ensure the plant at the very center, with no air bubbles.
Because each Sola cube contains an unique plant, there will be variations in color, size, and shape.
