Pim van den Akker created something very original with natural materials, showcasing the beauty of the Dianthus by Trendy Dianthus. In this summer design inspired by the beach, he has used a large seashell which he glued on a rock of sandstone. This seashell is topped off with water before carefully placing in the speckled two-toned sandy-coloured Dianthus. As sandstone is quite soft, Pim drilled two holes in it to secure the decorative iron wire covered in Raffia and bending the ends across and in the design. A day at the beach can sometimes get you to bring great and unusual material into a design. It almost looks like a creature from the sea!
