Floral Architectures. A Romanian Design Week collateral event. | Saturday 16.05.2015 at 17.00 Exhibition until 21.05.2015 | Urban-Spaces – Cafeteria Dogarilor Str. Dogarilor 26-30, Bucharest
Kaptura de Aer designers are proposing a syncretic event that aims at integrating the ephemeral exuberance of flowers in contemporary design and architecture through a compelling happening, all immersed in the plants’ glow and perfume.
At the same time, the special location of the event – Urban Spaces – Dogarilor Housing – offers an intimate ambiance through the tenants’ casual activities within the space: coffee break, socializing with the neighbors, lounge time etc. They will temporary become hosts for the visitors.
Kaptura de Aer invites floral designer Nicu Bocancea to present a design-led tailored demonstration with architectural flowers, having the product Forêt Étrange by Kaptura de Aer as starting point. The creations subsequently become part of the exhibition until the ephemeral art consumes itself.
Nicu Bocancea is a prolific floral designer whose pieces are literally flower installations that combine plants, new materials and unconventional techniques. His works appeared twice in International Floral Art, a prestigious biennial book series compiling the best contemporary floral design.
“Contemporary floral design thrills, amazes and delights. It can raise questions, confuse and overwhelm and at the same time it inspires and motivates.” [International Floral Art 2014/15]
