It was an exiting first day of Fleurop Interflora World Cup competition. All competitors had to do two tasks. Starting of with a surprize item in the morning and in the afternoon the first task the competitors had prepared beforehand. Titled, ‘100% Personal’.
Flowerweb and it team was right there and worked with the organisation to make sure we not only show you the end results but also the story behind the creations and techniques used told by the competitors themselves.
Below you can see the results from competitor Frédéric Dupré from France
On our Fleurop - Interflora event page you can see the floral designs from the other competitors.
All contestants were given a surprise assignment which was called "100% Dianthus". They had 4 hours preperation time and 90 minutes time to actually finish the assigment with flowers.
The main ingredients of this assigment:
All competitors recieved the same metal construction.
The main focus in the overall design should be on Dianthus flowers.All competitors were free to use as many of the provided materials as they want.
We had a lot of preparationworks for the other assignments, so to clear my head it was good to work with Dianthus. It’s a flower that’s nude, simple but beautiful. And it’s challenging to give this flower the value it needs.
Day 1: First competition task: 100% personal
The first World Cup task is all about the personality of the finalists. Free of the compulsion to observe rules or conventions, the individual work pieces should reflect the different facets of their characters.
This piece in a way represents my personal evolution. From childhood memories and the emotions of the past through the angst of searching for one’s place in the world to the freedom of adulthood. Flowers have provided me a way to dare to express myself, from the timid little boy to the man I have become today, like the caterpillar that becomes a butterfly! And so here we find the universe of the butterfly, of course with natural cocoons.
This piece is really indescribable. Two wooden structures capture the eye and support the cocoons which form natural water pockets. I prefer to let the images speak for themselves! As far as the time it took, morning, noon, evening and night! Weekends, holidays…Over a period of many months!
