Overview

Designed for Cap3000 “Bubble Forest” and “Dandelions” installations were created as a result of inspiration with delicate natural plant forms, and were executed in extremely hard and weather-resistant material — acid-resistant stainless steel.

“Dandelions” is an installation directly inspired by the sophisticated design of dandelions (Taraxacum officinale) occurring in nature. The concept of this work was preceded by a meticulous analysis of the structure of dandelion seedhead, which in a somewhat simplified form was then transposed to the macro scale. As a result, the delicate floral pattern took on a completely new — half futuristic, half fairy tale — context.

Goals

To make the plaza in front of the CAP 3000 commercial center more attractive.

Process

Design and manufacturing in Poland, transport to Nice and installation personally by the Artist and his team.
