With the Flower Constellations, setting up gorgeous arrangements is effortless every time, while saving flowers from being wasted.
Create masterpieces with wildflowers from your garden, the left-overs from your last bouquet or curated single flowers from the florist, using vases you already own.
The perforated patterns in the 12 different Flower Constellations are derived from the signs of the Zodiac, creating a playful distribution of the flowers in the vase.
The design is loosely inspired by floral artform Ikebana, celebrating the beauty and composition of single flowers.
The durable brass Constellations can be used again and again. Its clever 2d design allows the flat brass tool to expand and fit vases with diameters ranging 6,5 to 12 cm.
With colorful expressive packaging, the Flower Constellations make a fun floral gift with a personal touch.

Uniting Dutch top sectors
The Netherlands has a firm position as leader of the international flower market, exporting over 6 billion Euro's worth of Flowers last year, a new record.
Dutch Design is highly esteemed for its quality, playful functionalism and innovative use of materials. Reason for the Dutch government to label the creative industries one of their key development sectors.
With the Flower Constellations, House of Thol unites the two Dutch top sectors of Design and Flower trade, creating a fun introduction to hands-on flower arrangement for flower lovers around the world.
House of Thol decided to set up an international crowdfunding campaign for their design, and was awarded the coveted 'Project we Love' batch by Kickstarter at launch.
The design duo got the project fully funded in only 11 days and got to showcase their design during the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
The designers are aiming to reach an international audience in order to grow funding towards their first stretch goal.
The Flower Constellations campaign runs on Kickstarter until the 5th of May 2018 (Dutch Liberation Day), 21:00 Amsterdam time.
Early-bird pledgers will be able to pre-order a Flower Constellation for €15,-. (advised future retail price €17,95).
After a successful campaign, backers will receive their Flower Constellations by August 2018.
