The five of us founded the Ursprung group in October 2020. We are professionally active in design, working in flower shops and planning offices. Our interest in environmental art requires us to be sensitive to the peculiarities of nature and the growth of plants and to the circumstances caused by humans. We develop ideas at a location that appeals to us. We sketch our ideas and implement them in a design with real plant materials and some technical aids. The design should convey our idea and appeal to passing viewers, making them wonder and think. We pay our financial expenses ourselves.
