WAKIMUKUDO specialises in curating only the highest quality of aesthetics, relying our compositions on the innate sensitivity to nature; favouring the simple, spare and graceful over extravagant designs as we believe ostentatious beauty to be fragile, impermanent and hence – fleeting. Our earnest aspiration is to ignite a subtle and unobtrusive yet deeply moving feeling within our creational endeavours, bringing awareness to the beauty of ephemerality.
Wakimukudo symbolises the cyclic existence of our universe. The eternal force of nature, an orchestra of symphony, and the basis to all primal creations. The aesthetic sphere of Wakimukudo is found in the ephemeral representations of the rhythms of life. Our aesthetic curations and creational endeavours – invites you to momentarily liberate your soul to an unparalleled spirituality, an orchestra of symphony; to a magic that uplifts the veil of the unseen, and the passion that reconnects us to our energetic origin.
