Frank Bruggeman Flower SALON/ contributor and master of all things blue at Flower SALON/ Museum van LoonNature envelopes our surrounds, yet remains a much neglected entity. Frank Bruggeman uses living space and nature in ways that questions society's understanding of both ideas. Describing his work as "analysing and re-conceptualising human surroundings" Frank's use of blue to determine a lack of hierarchy makes his work both distinctive and room consuming....

Willem de Rooij, FlowerSALON/ The Temporary Stedelijk Amsterdam
Bouquet V by Willem de Rooij in collaboration with Gerda's Bloemen is another refreshing exhibit for Flower SALON/.
Using 95 different flowers in a cylindrical vase with each flower being used only the once in the bouquet. de Rooij has used this idea to express the elimination of hierarchy instead focussing on diversity and "the tension between the individual and the collective".
To think so much thought can transpire from a bouquet of flowers is extraordinary - thank you for encouraging us to think beyond the usual Mr de Rooij.... from all of us at FlowerSALON/
Step inside one of Amsterdam's most exclusive hotels, with your Flower SALON Passepartout
|Jordan leads the way...|
|work by Flower Engineer Andreas Verhagen|
Hotel De L'Europe doesn't normally open it's doors to strangers. One of the most distinctive hotels in Amsterdam, it is home to many prominent politicians, businessmen and people who make things happen. So when you enter the hotel, it is best to have a hotel key or Flower SALON Passepartout in hand so that Jordan or another hotel concierge can take you on a tour of the building currently being used to house the works of Andreas Verheijen, Wendelien Daan, Freudenthal/Verhagen and flowers from Ivy and Pom Pon. Thanks to Iman Ahimsa for these sublime photos of Andreas and Wendelien's work.

Otto Berchem at Flower SALON/ Museum van Loon. Every day Otto comes to visit the Museum with a new set of flowers to make the installation. We talked to Annette Fehrmann from the Museum who said that she simply "had to have his work in the museum", as soon as she saw it presented to her by the SALON/ crew. "We support a lot of contemporary artists at Van Loon, and when I saw Otto's work I turned to my friend and said - let's go for it, this is exactly what I want."
