Large Installations

Chelsea in Bloom

In 2019 John Lewis & Partners participated in alternative floral art show Chelsea in Bloom for the first time - and we were tasked with creating a show-stopping first impression. An astounding 3,000 fresh blooms were needed to craft our ‘under the sea’ themed display on behalf of John Lewis and Edinburgh Gin. Our sustainable design sculpted flowers into tumbling waves, tropical fish and colourful corals using chicken wire and no floral foam. Edinburgh Seaside Gin inspired our choice of bladderwrack, rose and lavender to create the colourful seabed.

We were over the moon to win a Gold Award for efforts… but scooping The 2019 People’s Champion Award made our year!

Burberry Her Launch

 

For the launch of a new fragrance for women, Her Eau de Parfum, Burberry launched their ‘Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner' campaign starring Cara Delevigne. As part of the accompanying experiential activity to capture the spirit of London we worked with Burberry and RedHouse Production to create a striking installation on London’s Southbank. Inside a six-metre long perspex box, complete with scented steam effect and pink neon lighting design, we created a series of ethereal gypsophila clouds scattered with white orchids.

A special tree for Annabel's

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, particularly in Mayfair where we helped assemble one of the biggest Christmas trees in town at Annabel’s. Working with the immensely talented team at S2, we turned the club's famous facade into a gigantic tree lighting up Berkley Square with its thousands of lights, baubles and oversized gifts. A candy cane door arch and giant gold bow provided the finishing touches... not forgetting a gold star shining brightly on top of course!

House & Garden included the festive facade in their round-up of ‘The best Christmas Trees on show in London’

Halloween at Annabel's

 

A blood-curdling amount of effort went into our transformation of Mayfair institution Annabel’s for Halloween 2018. Weeks of preparation alongside two production companies culminated in an all-day installation to cover the club’s famous facade in creepy-crawlies and cobwebs. Inside, we metamorphosed the Rose Room into a cemetery for the fright night using fresh red roses, black waxed roses and acres of moss. Our Horror Maze laden with hanging vines led ghoulish guests to the Underworld Nightclub.

Annabel's Jungle Party

 

The Grandirosa team pulled off it's largest event to date in the form of Annabel's Jungle Party held at its stunning club in Berkeley Square. We worked with three production studios to create a spectacular evening for their valued private members.

The star-studded crowd were greeted by performers dressed as monkeys abseiling off of the all-natural foliage and flower facade our team built. Acrobats adorned in wild and wonderful costumes swang down the six flights of stairs hanging from natural garlands in the main stairwell. We transformed the Garden Room into a tropical paradise where Rita Ora surprised the audience on a custom-built stage which we covered in clusters of bananas, monkey vine, lotus pods, tropical leaves and Spanish moss. In the Elephant Room we used grasses and dried flowers to create a more African-inspired jungle scape. An unbeatable setting for a serious jungle boogie!
