a bountiful bouquet of colorful blooms emerges from this new york city phone booth

botanical designer lewis miller returns to the new york city streets to enliven an otherwise ordinary corner with a bountiful bouquet of flowers. a few years ago, miller turned empty garbage cans into voluminous vases, each which overflowed with colorful blooms and lush greenery. his most recent street side installation emerges from a telephone booth at 825 west end avenue in manhattan’s upper west side, spilling out from within the booth’s sliding doors.

miller’s latest ‘flower flash’ is a project that he and his team emphasize is a ‘constant pursuit of beauty’. ‘what initially began as an lewis miller design experiment to reinvigorate and reconnect us to our craft, turned into a beautiful shared experience in a city of millions,’ the team describes. ‘the flower flash is our gift to new yorkers. our goal is to create a positive, emotional response through flowers. seeing people’s reactions to our flower flashes emphasizes the basic goodness in all people and prioritizes compassion and the need for LMD x NYC to carry on.’
