Brief.
After completing two installations Floating Gardens and Cylinder Gardens for our clients at the Centrum Chodov shopping mall they asked us to create a third unique nature inspired installation. We had full creative freedom to create x2 pieces each to be hosted in a glass cylinder.

Hurdles.
The area where these pieces stand had no sunlight. They will be seen from all angles (360 degrees) and will be on display for the duration of 5+ years. Shop windows will change with seasonal trends, while these display designs need to still impress and inspire returning viewers time after time.

Result.
Two graphical flower installations, each piece being a unique design while working to together as one collection. Inspired by the beautiful and simplistic Japanese art form Ikebana, we wanted to create two pieces that would stand the test of time. The beauty of this flower composition is that every aspect; materials, shape, greenery, colours, symmetry, balance and simplicity has to be considered in order to create this perfect, balanced and elegant composition. We designed and made everything in Amsterdam, then packaged and shipped them off to Prague.

These pieces host a selected range of flowers with the focus on the materials and composition. We used artificial flowers due to the lack of sunlight and length of time they need to live for. We created a simple art work that was light for transport and a hanging system was simple to install. Our goal was to keep the views smiling every time they pass by for years to come. 

 
 

Best part.
