Ahti Lyra is a highly talented Estonian florist from the land of twilight, snowstorms and Northern lights. He is a fresh breeze with his glacially sharp floral designs, unafraid of contrast and clear lines. He stands for modern creative shapes inspired by his background as a cold Nordic guy with a certain sense of spirituality. For the art-based design work, he tries to keep a distance from the wool-and-wire trend. For him, art is feelings that have been transformed into thoughts, and thoughts transformed into his works. For him, inspiration is everywhere – for example, in old books, in churches or historic graveyards, on trips around the world or simply when he drives through the beautiful Estonian countryside. He is a dedicated and hard-working florist who always aspires higher.
