The Wunderkammer

Florian Seyd and Ueli Signer are master florists. They dress homes and weddings worldwide with their creations, they exhibit their botanical art and they stage a Shop for a Week. Nature is the theme running through all their work. You can read more in our interview, and naturally we also produced a video.

Barnabé Fillion

Biologist, psychologist, fashion model, photographer, stylist and designer of daring floral perfumes: meet Barnabé Fillion. He develops fragrances for leading brands, niche perfume houses and fashion labels. But he also does work for private individuals, so perhaps he can conjure up something sweet-smelling for Father’s Day. Read more about Barnabé and check out the video.

Menno Kroon

This Master Florist has a fabulous concept store in Amsterdam. “People consider me a trendsetter, but I don’t see that at all. I do the things that I feel driven to do. I thereby get my inspiration from all over: from my immediate environment, from conversations with my customers and from my travels to major cities.” Read the whole interview and check out the video

Have we persuaded you of the bond between men and flowers? Then surprise your father with a lovely bouquet on 18 June, and tell him that he’s in very good company as a fan of flowers.
