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 Marc Müller from Switzerland
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.
All competitors were free to use as many of the provided materials as they want.
The main focus in the overall design should be on Dianthus flowers.
It is still free. You only have one guideline: dianthus. There was nothing unusual, so I had no problems. I like my design.
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.
With my work I want give a peek behind my personality. A lot of people say that my appearance is different than my real me. I’m more a reserved person and need a little time to open myself to other people. That’s why my design is behind glass.
I’m interested in living and architechture and at my home everything is white, light and restrained. I want to express my contrasts: striking at the outside and reserved in my inside.
I have a strong shell but a soft core.
The integral trademark of my design ist he butterfly that develops like me doing my work.
I have packed a self designed vase, that has a unusual shape and design. The filling will be simple, but dominated by the size and amount of the flowers. The flowers will be sticked in foam thereby they last long and can flower out.
I can’t tell the exact amount of time, I tried and changed a lot till I had it till it suits to me.
Freedom is the best to flower out. To be constricted prohibits the flow of creativity, both in private and professional.
