Daniel Ost's work in floral design goes far beyond table arrangements to bridge the gap between floral design and art. Considering Ost an artist, we can understand his medium as elements from the natural world: flowers, branches, and plants of all varieties. His large-scale, site-specific constructions at times enter the realms of sculpture and set design.
These works are as much about the ways in which they transform the places they inhabit as they are about Ost's particular and creative utilization of natural materials. Among his many varied projects are the backdrop to the show of Dries Van Noten's spring 2007 collection and a sculptural installation at the 2007 Venice Biennale.
Like any artist's monograph, this book focuses on the range of Ost's work over time, highlighting his most celebrated works while providing an overarching view of his career.
