4 L-shaped tiered units evoke a vibrant street market stall with a checkerboard of densely presented colourful cut flowers, rising up to a ‘shop counter’ laid out with vases/jugs displaying the individual flowers & potted plants in a more traditional way.
The central square is enclosed with 4 large palms in giant terracotta pots, giving a sense of enclosure but allowing views through to the central display.
CENTRAL DISPLAY: evokes a communal meal with a table ‘laid’ as if for a street party. Bowls, jugs, plates, glasses etc. are set out and flower arrangements used to represent the food. The bottom tier represents the seating set with ‘cushions’ made from flower arrangements.
In the centre a floral totem pole rises up to 3.5m as the focal point of the exhibit.
