Flowers the way they grow in nature - an elegant, entirely new vase that makes the simplest bouquet surprising and fun.
Bouquoo is the first Father-Daughter Project on Kickstarter. Adela's video appears below.
Bouquoo is a bold new design that makes the most of even the simplest bouquets. Inspired by the image of flowers growing in nature, it uses an innovative structure to help you create dramatic arrangements in seconds. Here's one...
A Bouquet of Irises - We took it just as it came from the store, placed the bunch over the bouquoo spine, (see the video for a quick demonstration), and decorated the tie with a single leaf. Bouquoo works beautifully with simple bouquets and with more elaborate arrangements.
Bouquoo is made of high quality glass and machined brass parts and is designed to last for years. We have refined our prototypes through extensive testing with florists, while perfecting the minimalist design. Here's the standard Bouquoo, available in the pledge column for $60.00.
Mmmmm. Now that's minimalist. And it comes apart for cleaning and storage.
Here's the How To video:
How we'll use your pledges: Our startup costs include production of a high quality machined and hand finished mold for the vase. This type of mold allows us to produce a seamless vessel true to our design. Other costs are production of the brass components, final assembly, finish and packaging, and shipping.
With Kickstarter, and with your help, we aim to manufacture our first production run, and introduce Bouquoo to the world.
Here it is with some pompom narcissus:
As an exclusive part of the initial production run, we are also offering the Museum Version of Bouquoo. This is a handmade, all glass design, made by the same artisan who produced our prototypes. It's blown of borosilicate glass, and it features a tapered spine with intricate internal fluting. It will be express shipped in a special protected box.
Both versions of Bouquoo are available for now only on Kickstarter via this project.
Here are some quick instructions as illustrated by a very talented illustrator, Gavriel Yawitz -
Here's a new picture of the vase with Calla Lilies - So easy to get this surprising effect.
Here's some more good news. The first art for the postcards has arrived from Adela in New York, and we will be printing it up soon. Here's a taste....
More beautiful Calla Lilies in time for the holidays.
You can also tie the bouquet with floral ribbon as shown below.
