OASIS® Designer’s Collection: Experimental Floral Object as Room Decoration
The black Floral Foam Block offers creative freedom and now functions as a container itself. No further basic design is required. The egg shape of the modelled block is florally complemented with playful tendrils, foliage and flowers. Moreover, it corresponds with the organic form.
While conventional floral design processes only allow the material to be inserted into the surface, the design block can be decorated on all sides. A completely new way of thinking in the way of designing is required – the block provides the florist with creative freedom.

About the Project
We set the base – you create the emotions. With this motto, Smithers-Oasis is starting the new year. A new collection that is aimed specifically at floral designers who strive for limitless design freedom – the OASIS® Designer‘s Collection. 8 students of the Staatliche Fachschule für Blumenkunst (College for Floral Art) Weihenstephan were given the honour of testing the new product line in advance and addressed the following questions: „What impulses can the new OASIS® Designer‘s Collection give to the floristry sector and to floral art? Furthermore, how have the Smithers-Oasis products influenced former and current floral designs?“. The main focus was on the functionality for daily floristic work. The aim here was to present the products practically and efficiently for events, shop windows and exhibition stands by using specific design techniques. In the subjects of design-oriented composition, visualization and model, design theory, photography and media design, the students of the 70th year developed, visualized and executed their ideas for the OASIS® Designer‘s Collection.
