Content must be understood to be staged properly. Uniqueness and attention to detail distinguish their projects, realized in close collaboration with clients. Profound knowledge, a good sense for capturing just the right touch, and a fascination for artistic and creative content guide them in designing every event. The determination to not compromise on quality is just as much an integral part of their work as the excitement found in rising to new challenges.

Additionally, Timo shares:

“It´s extremely important to be aware that plants are the third living force on earth, after people and animals. Add to this my irrepressible love for plants. I want to investigate the distinctiveness and versatility of plants. I just want to know their origin, history, how to look after them, and the factors affecting the growth of plants. This source of knowledge offers the designer an incredibly broad spectrum of new inspirations. With flowers, you can arouse emotions, make experiences and moments unforgettable, and decorate rooms…. A palette of possibilities that will never be exhausted. Plants have always been an active component of our lives, and still are. They turn any event into a special moment and I truly love plants.”

More About Timo Bolte and How His Love for Flowers and Plants Started

Even when Timo was just a kid, he was fascinated by plants. It started with plants in his own garden and helping out in his friend’s nursery, and finally ended up as an apprentice with Gregor Lersch. Timo worked together with Gregor Lersch for many years. But there was a lot more he wanted to know about plants, every detail about them, so he did his citizen’s service in the Botanical Gardens of the University of Tübingen. And one thing led to another…

Living with plants got more and more intense, and his understanding of plants grew ever deeper. After his citizen’s service, Timo gave professional demonstrations on a freelance basis, among other things as public relations for the Taiwan Orchid Growers Association. The urge to explore the unknown drove him to set off for the Far East. He had the good fortune to familiarize himself with Asian plant traditions and Asian plant culture as a Senior Designer with Hibiya Kadan Floral Design in Tokyo. After that, he spent a little time in Paris, to acclimatize himself once more in Europe. At the moment, Timo is an active member of a leading events organizer in Vienna. During this time, he has been the leading florist at the Ritz Carlton Vienna for four years. In addition, he also undertakes photo projects, events, and classes abroad in places like Taiwan, Russia, and all over Europe.
