year round

In past years a decreasing amount of plants was observed in interiors. Recently however, tropical leaves and flowers are making a comeback. During their 15th anniversary the Dutch design label mo man tai picks up on this trend in surprising way.

BOUQUET; as a timeless flower arrangement, a graphical pattern in a trendy metallic finish. The semi-finished gold and copper coloured foils are produced in Belgium from 150 micron strong, nonflammable aluminium. The quality material can be modelled easily and allows all to upcycle their candle holder.

With BOUQUET it’s very easy to create festive and reuseable table decoration.


Rely on your creativity and make your own string art. Result assured; the masters preceded you.

The packaging includes one DIN A0 poster with different patterns from which you can select one to apply.
