You can imagine how super happy I was when approached by Agrumi Topiary suppliers of bespoke topiary structures, to partner with them and provide the floral styling elements for their EE Glastonbury Festival 2016 project.
EE, the official technology and communications partner of Glastonbury Festival commissioned Agrumi to build three large 4G Wifi topiary hotspots to ‘echo’ some of Glastonbury’s most iconic areas/stages at the festival. These structures were to be working Wifi hotspots for the duration of the festival, providing free and super-speedy 4G Wifi to festival-goers.
The three topiary structures comprised of The Pyramid Stage (225cm x 400cm x 400cm), The Park Tower (255cm x 85cm x 85cm) and Arcadia Stage (225cm x 315cm x 315cm.).
My brief was the responsibility to a) source materials to be used for the individual branding of the structures, which was to reflect the brand/brand colours, b) style these fabulous handmade and gigantic structures incorporating ‘flowers that will withstand the great British weather’ – with the latter in mind, I opted safely for faux silk gerbera!
SO, armed with 1000 stems of silk gerbera, 500 metres of double faced satin ribbon, 2000 cable ties and 30 tubes of floral adhesive, I headed for Hampshire where I practically moved in for 4 days prior to Glasto with the Agrumi team.
Such fun! x
