The Palm Beach Blooms project included 6 large-scale stainless steel dandelions now permanently installed in West Palm Beach Downtown. These flowers, each over 15ft tall, are fabricated from 316 Stainless Steel with outdoor rated lighting systems. Each flower consists of over 1,000 pedals that are highly polished to refract the light source.
The sculptures are designed to require low to zero maintenance, while being able to withstand all of the elements: wind, rain, salt. Within the blooms and surrounding space are motion sensors to create a memorable interactive experience, acting as a magnet for all that is near. These Blooms are fully customizable, igniting in unique lighting arrays; always giving a new, fresh environment for regular pedestrians.
