Tomas De Bruyne

Tomas De Bruyne, Belgian floral designer, owns his own consulting company and is also member of Life3, a company created from the cooperation between Tomas, and two other European top florists, Per Benjamin from Sweden and Max van de Sluis from the Netherlands.

Tomas has won several medals in Belgium and abroad.  At the 2002 World Cup, Tomas ended fifth and also won the exceptional «Quality and Freshness Award» for best technical work. Tomas is a judge at national and international floral competitions, gives seminars, lectures and demonstrations all over the world and has realised many prestigious projects worldwide.

Tomas’ goal is to create artistic designs within the customer’s commercial framework with a clear focus on and respect for the flower’s own character and quality.  For Tomas, flowers are a means of expressing himself beyond any boundaries; striving for perfect harmony has become a second nature.
