Giant poppies

Mohnblüten bei NachtLeuchtende XXL Gartenobjekte

Poppies are the epitome of delicacy and bright color. But not every poppy blossom is as ephemeral as they are often sung about in romantic poems:

On the occasion of a landscape exhibition by the organizer “Garten Kulturzentrum Niedersachsen – Park der Gärten”, ACCENTFORM manufactured 10 giant poppy blossom sculptures from glass fiber reinforced plastic – delicate and sensitive like the original, but stable, durable, safe and functional like all ACCENTFORM sculptures.

The wall thickness of a poppy blossom was only about 2-3 mm thanks to the highly stable and durable GRP laminate used, and a diameter of about 1.5 x 1.4m was chosen for the asymmetrical funnel shape of the blossom. After laminating each shape, sturdy tubes were mounted to the bottom of the flower to act as flower stems or mounting brackets. Two opposite holes in the flower funnel serve as water outlets – thus ensuring function and statics even in bad weather.

With the color “Fire Red”, the sculptures were fully adapted to the original occurring in the wild and achieve the same delicate effect as a real poppy blossom through translucency. A lamp embedded in each of the 10 poppy blossoms creates an extraordinary light effect that makes the blossom shine from within. The assembly and installation of the lamps was checked in detail before delivery and delivered to the client after successful testing.
