Designing With (And For) Flowers: Beauty and Sensitivity in 7 Flower Shop Projects

Gifting flowers to someone, or yourself, at various stages in our lives can be a way to express gratitude for important achievements or to wish someone well. This ritual is used to express a feeling. In many cultures it is delicate and sensitive. It usually considers the choice of flowers for each occasion.

This is why flower shops and flower stores that specialize in flower arrangements often have a wide variety of species to arrange in order to allow customers to select the best arrangement or bouquet. Many florists use spatial organization and design elements to enhance the natural beauty. This strategy includes the use more neutral colors on the surfaces in contrast with the various species’ colors and innovative displays that work in harmony with the arrangements.

Below are examples of flower shops that showcase the various design options available. These include the overall spatial concept, the details of exhibiting structures and the interaction with bouquets and arrangements.
