In November I designed and created fourteen Dandelion’s that are located next to the highest building in the world – Burj Khalifa. Motive of the project were dandelions which are present in the nature but are made of acid resistant stainless steel electropolished. My modern form but also relate to nature. They are transferred from micro to macro scale.
They are illuminated by RGB LED lamps.
The goal of the sculpture was to present the organic form of the Dandelions in contrast to the architecture of the surrounding buildings, and specifically Burj Khalifa.
My role in this project was designing the Dandelions with curved stalks, I was also responsible for projecting the arrangement of the Dandelions next to Burj Khalifa, supervision of the collaborators work, organization of the transport logistics and and installation of the sculptures.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
