To celebrate spring, London-based artist Rebecca Louise Law (previously) has placed 30,000 live flowers in the atrium of German Bikini Berlin, suspending a colorful garden above the heads of the store’s visitors with copper wire. The deconstructed floral arrangement was donated by Dutch Toll was blumen machen and designed to be an installation that would dry over the time of its placement in the space.
“The installation is designed to be an inviting, enchanting celebration of the outdoors and of spring color,” said Law. “We decided to name the sculpture simply, ‘Garten’ the German word for garden, in keeping with the simple, understated post-war design statement made by the Bikini Berlin building itself.”
