Florists and garden centers,
a special flower and plant-based offer

As with each session, MAISON&OBJET showcased a selection of creative exhibitors who play on the synergy between plant life and decoration: pots, vases, candles, artificial flowers, floral decoration, outdoor furniture, etc. A multitude of products and trends to be discovered through the aisles of the show.

This September 2015, MAISON&OBJET reinvented itself by reorganizing its offer. With a desire to better meet your expectations, the show is offering a clarified presentation revolving around three major poles for a smoother visit: MAISON and its overarching range of decoration organized into different worlds;OBJET, the show’s concept store, ideal for retailers; and lastly LUXURY, DESIGN & INTERIOR DECORATION and its exceptional itinerary. And on top of that, simplified visits, smoother exchanges between exhibitors and visitors and new synergies.

Floating Flower Garden by teamLab (Hall 7)

TeamLab, the Japanese digital technology collective, invited with this amazing floating garden to a sensorial
promenade in an immersive installation with the overtones of a suspended Eden.

The teamLab – FLOATING FLOWER GARDEN SPACE / Have you ever opened the doors to a garden with thousands of levitating and perfumed flowers? This exceptional and highly poetic sensory experience was presented by teamLab at the entrance of hall 7.

After last season’s dreamy banquet of birds and flowering cherry branches, the Japanese techno-artists return to Villepinte with an amazing botanical fairyland. 2,300 suspended flowers, with their roots anchored overhead, float in a vivid white bubble. Petals, leaves and pistils blossom in the silence of the carnal and mysterious garden. The place evolves since the flowers grow each day thanks to the technological
prowess of teamLab. As if endowed with a conscience, they rise when the spectator approaches, creating a dome over his head, and then descend once again. If visitors stand in a group together, the botanical chorus is amplified but the flowers remain evasive.

This 3-D metaphor takes inspiration from a zen kôan, those part-fable, part-poetic Buddhist enigmas. TeamLab’s founder Toshiyuki Inoko tells us that in the 13th century, a zen priest left his meditative retreat in the mountains to teach the path of awakening. One day, he pointed to a flower in a garden: “People today see it as if they were in a dream”, he said. “The Heaven and I come from the same roots. Everything around me and myself as well are made of the same substance”.

This is the installation’s philosophy: the delicate link it weaves between visitors and the ecosystem offers a way to restore our sense of unity with Nature. By modeling the wonders, the experience of a flower garden awakens us through the magic of algorithm and introduces the visitor to teamLab’s ecological message.
