Oka Hiroyuki, one of the youngest members of the current generation of Japanese flower arrangers, is no exception to the rule. But in addition to that typical, detailed craftsmanship and the pursuit of perfect execution, this young artist is endowed with a refreshing sense of humour and a fantastic eye for witty coincidences. This first monograph contains a wondrous collection of his original work, which only reveals its secrets after close inspection. Hiroyuki Oka makes colourful conceptual art that far exceeds the predictability of perfection.
Seven years after his first book, Bart Lens and his team Lens°Ass show how this approach can lead to exciting projects. Formulating a concept as clearly as possible is the basis of every design. With the right choice of materials and controlled detailing, creations that radiate calm and serenity emerge. The clear use of lines strengthens the pure emotions that arise between the design and the light. The great care for the interior in all its facets is a constant preoccupation of Lens°Ass.
