26 MEMENTO MORI F ew people articulate the nature of flowers as fluently as Catherine and Michael Viviano. The mother-and-son architectural design team behind Viviano Viviano suggests their offshoot flower service, Ciuri (Sicilian for "flower"), is a counterpoint to the much slower processes of architecture and design. "Flowers are a living, inherently temporary medium," Michael says. "So there are some interesting ideas to play with there. We think about the vessel and how the floral varietals will interact with it; how the arrangement will move and change over the course of a week or so; how it will look in various light conditions. It can all be very heady and meditative, or it can be a frivolous and purely aesthetic pleasure. We're always curious as to how our clients will experience the flowers, but it's gratifying to know that, in any case, we've left them with something beautiful."
