Der Blumenladen

Der Blumenladen

How ingenious is this: a flower shop where rather than buying cut flowers, you buy photos of plant bits that are then constructed into 3-Dimensional arrangements.

Wolf Klein’s Der Blumenladen (The Flower Shop) is part old-school flower shop, part mad take-out menu, and part wacky flip book with a splash of conceptual art (at least that’s the impression given by Google’s translating tool — the site is in German). What’s more, patrons can mix it up by choosing leaves and flowers of assorted plants to build a monster plant or keep it simple with a sole flower. Whatever your floral tastes, cut stems last a week at best, while a photo lasts a lifetime – no care required.
