On the second day of Fleurop Interflora World Cup competition, the designers were asked to undertake two live task which they could prepare at home. First- a revolutionary bouquet 100% Hand-tied. The second assigment of the day was all about creating a 100% organic workpiece that is free of floral foam, wire, or metal.
It was another day with amazing floral design work.. Where the competitors fought to get a spot into the finals. Only ten would make it to the next day....
Flowerweb worked directly with the organisation to make sure we not only show you the end results but also a spep by step from start to finish. We interviewed the competitors to tell us the stories behind the creations and techniques used
Below you can see the works results from Frédéric Dupré
Day 2: Second competition task: 100% hand-tied
The second task requires the creation of a revolutionary bouquet that is striking, unique, and never before seen in a time limitof 1 hour.
I hope to have reinvented the fan-shaped bouquet! I chose to create a bouquet of surprising form with a horizontal floral piece; neither active nor passive. I have attempted to reinvent the fan-shaped bouquet by working in three dimensions rather than the usual two. The result is a little bit animalistic, infused with Giacometti…
I would give this to someone who is in need of moral support, of lightness, who wants to escape from reality. To someone who is ill—why not?—to say that tomorrow is another day, that one must take off and let the mind wander in order to feel better.
Day 2: Third competition task: 100% organic
Task three relates to freedom by reduction. All of the contestants are required to avoid using any materials that are not recyclable. This is all about creating a 100% organic workpiece that is free of floral foam, wire, or metal.
The « skeleton » of this creation is composed of a supple wooden structure covered in papier-mâché. I used natural glue, flour and water. This structure is so amazing in its suppleness and its solidity that I wondered if anyone would believe it was constructed entirely of natural materials! So I took photos during the construction in order to show how I worked with the materials. There are also natural pipes and gutters made of organic resin…
The incredible solidity of papier-mâché! I started to smooth it with sand paper and ended up having to use an electric sanding machine!
