Natasha Lisitsa and her team at Waterlily Pond Floral and Event Design Studio recently unveiled Fantastical — a 1,000-pound floral creation that was suspended from a 35-foot ceiling at the architecturally renowned de Young Museum in San Francisco. The organic forms were built from 2,500 feet of vibrantly colored bamboo fashioned into interlocked 3-D pyramids and embellished with giant, 5-foot “flowers” built from Mexican fan palm tree leaf-boots. Fantastical was part of the 2011 Bouquets to Art exhibit, and, at 120 feet long, it engaged the entire structural design of the de Young’s interior courtyard.
