A burst of color, as 10,000 jars of flowers liven up the Colette store in Paris


A jar of petals. That’s all the inspiration it took for sculpture pioneer and plant artist Azuma Makoto to come up with a stunning pop-up installation called Petal Box, in the city of Paris. What he did was take 10,000 jars filled uniquely with flower petals, to create a floral kaleidoscopic landscape, within the windows of Colette store in Paris. From a distance, it’s a vibrant burst of colors while up close – it’s a beautiful mix of blue, yellow, red and pink petals.

The bottling process began in 2012 and in 2015, the project culminated in his first Petal Box. Makoto is now working to create two smaller rectangular prisms.

“It is one of the most beautiful moments when flowers are in full bloom just before dying. We face this moment a lot as florists, and the idea came to mind to put flowers almost finished blooming into bottles to capture this beauty,” said Makoto.
