This year, Holland Dahlia Event collaborated with Clusius College Alkmaar to give students in Flower & Design the opportunity to get a spot at the corso. The theme this year was Wedding Fairytale. That is why Lucas Veuger (19) and Lucas Beentjes (18) also got asked to think of a design that fit the theme.


They quickly gained the idea to create a swing, but they didn’t want a standard design. That is how they ended up at our bamboo swing. The school couldn’t supply them with bamboo, but we at Bamboo Import Europe was ready to help. They sawed the poles and had a frame made at school. This ensured easy set up on the building days. It was important to make it safe to sit on, so there wouldn’t be any accidents. Lucas V. and Lucas B. solved this by making the seat into a flower piece itself. The swing then got pinned into the ground. This way it was as safe as could be. The swing was finished with some vertical planters, in-between curtains and manilla rope. This artistic swing is appropriately named “Flying High”.


The Holland Dahlia Event was September 1st till September 3rd. You can follow Lucas Veuger on Instagram or check out his website for more information.
