This is an exciting test of how spontaneous these designers from around the world can be with only 15 minutes to view the various items presented to them and create something amazing.
Flowers on the Orient
The structure originates from the imagery of meant scriptures in ancient China. A Chinese painting appears vividly in front of us. The inwardness of the Orient, with an atmosphere of Wabi-sabi, tranquility, and natural processes, flows among the foliages and flowers.
Orchid, Yes I like the orchid very much.
Taiwan has many beatiful orchids, our orchid export around the world, it is many different varieties, and very nice for me to make the right choice i terms of the right color for my design."
I would like to show the nature branch in my design, I think to use the most beautiful flower shape is to respect the flower I use, I like to show the best line of each material, and I think this is also the typical way of arranging the flower in Orient.
