Monumental and modern. Intimate and rustic. Living sculptures. Created by thirty-eight of the world’s most renowned designers, these are flowers as you have never seen them before.
Once upon a time, flowers were merely beautiful. Now, they can be breathtaking (Rebecca Louise Law’s installation of 7,000 roses strung from the Royal Opera House ceiling), mind-bending (Harijanto Setiawan’s floral kaleidoscope), or surprising (Azuma Makoto’s candy-colored bottled flowers).
With an exquisite cover and monumental size, this elegant tome is both a gorgeous object to anchor a coffee table and a trip around the world of contemporary floral design. Through the work of 38 artists from 14 countries–from Amsterdam to Japan and from Spain to the United States–this collection shows the ingenuity possible for every occasion: decorations for weddings, arrangements for banquets, installations for shops and hotels, accessories for fashion shows, art gallery exhibits, and more intimate but no less memorable displays for the home.
