WHO

To give flowers means to share beauty.

The idea of telling the story of Slovak culture through contemporary design comes from project’s creative directors Lars Kemper & Peter Olah.

The mission of Flowers for Slovakia NGO, founded 2012, builds upon their original project, which has been developed in cooperation with Michala Lipková already since 2009.
