Inspiration
Bloom is inspired by the summer and nature's most colourful creation: flowers. Fabric petals create a canopy o relax under in the shade and to enjoy the colour tones above you. The wind makes the petals dance to produce a mesmerizing effect.

Design Challenges
The creative challenge was to make sure this was not just a round version of the Breezer, a previous design. We needed to create an extra level which we achieved by adding the coloured tops which interacted with the fabric underneath and by playing with the different densities and spacing of the hanging fabrics. Technologically and technically, there were not many challenges since we learnt most already from developing the Breezer.
