BOTANICA
A collaboration between Eindhoven based designer Giulia Pompilj and the flower shop Amyrlin Bazar.

Botanica focuses on the lack of consideration within flower production. Seemingly inoffensive because its products are of natural origin, this industry has in fact a significant impact on global pollution, with an often underestimated waste rate.

 

By creating a series of products reusing flowers and plants that can no longer be sold due to their wilted condition, Botanica puts the emphasis on this problem, giving a second chance to these rotten and discarded organic materials and their potential value. 

 

As they change with every season, so does each piece and natural dyes produced. Due to their unpredictable conditions, the colours or their availability is constantly altered, on par with the costumers’s wish for self-expression and therefore the uniqueness of each piece.
