OASIS® Designer’s Collection: Herbal Bar as Event Decoration
Room decoration which is more than just decoration and which can actively be used by the guests of the event. The Mediterranean, „wild-growing“ herbal bar consists of black cylinders which are the base for decorative materials and also serve as water supply. All floral materials are fully edible: the selection was based on the menu and the flavours of the food were translated into a floral design.
The simple cylinder shape can be used in a flexible way. I have used it functionally but in this theme, I could imagine adding a grooved relievo to the form so that they resemble cans.

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.
