The VEA championship is arranged in September every year at VEA in Moelv, Norway.
In 2016, Flower Designer Marianne Leren invited Design i sentrum to participate in the competition,
thereby kick-starting an interesting collaboration.
The task was presented as follows:
”Make a botanic work from these words, with a coherent title:
The space in between
The work is to be presented in your chosen exterior location at VEA”
Developing a concept, the duo’s thoughts quickly moved from fysical space to space in time.
With the concept LIFE they also found their desired location; a burbling water source.
Water is life and represents something safe, the start of everything.
From this base they created a work that stretched to the skies, up and ”into the future”.
With the form’s dramatic appearance and perspective,
they wanted to shed light on life’s challenges and development.
