Maison & Objet 2015 – Flower Garden

I’m now back from a
frantic but memorable trip to Paris to attend Maison & Objet. I’m busily
sorting through notes, photo’s and press releases to bring you an update on the
highlights of MO15. In the meantime I want to share with you one of the most
notable highlights of the exhibition, the Floating Flower Garden
Space by Japanese techno-artists TeamLab. This was
an extraordinary sensory experience of 2300 suspended flowers with their roots
anchored overhead created a botanical fairyland of rising and falling blooms. It
was a serene oasis in the fast-paced energy fuelled show; with its a quiet calming
soundtrack and the plants rising whenever a visitor approached the installation,
almost like a breath. This remarkable installation reminded me how precious
nature is, especially when viewed in such an alien environment. I just wish the video I took had come out so that you could have experienced it too. Simply breath taking.
