BOMPAS & PARR | Perrier-Jouët Fleurs des Rêves, The London EDITION, February 2016


"For this project Bompas & Parr are creating two forms of colour changing flowers. The first is treated with a liquid crystal dye that changes at 27 degrees Celsius from a deep satin black to Champagne bottle green exhibiting all the hues regularly seen on the backs of beetles. You can cup the flower in yours and your lover’s hands to effect the transformation or even use your hot breath!" Bompas & Parr

BOMPAS & PARR | Perrier-Jouët Fleurs des Rêves, The London EDITION, February 2016

"The second varietal of colour changing flowers will be treated with a black thermochromatic dye that is transformed at 31 degrees Celsius. The bloom is then spritzed with Bompas & Parr’s perfumed crystal elixir and ignited. In the heat of the flame, the blossom changes colour revealing the original pigment. So the ritual of giving a bouquet becomes a total sensory onslaught, enhancing the fleeting enchantment of this Valentine’s tradition. This second, more incendiary, flower is only available through participating in one of our technical floristry workshops." Bompas & Parr.
