Opus is a Botanical Florist and Design Studio based in Cape Town’s Silo District founded in 2011 by Marissa Pretorius, who is still the creative force behind the business.

Having a design background, Opus became an umbrella under which Marissa could continue to design, create and innovate – now using botanicals as a medium. This design-led approach sets Opus apart. Our work is conceptual and our output original.

We specialise in hanging plants, indoor plants, fresh flower arrangements, hand tied bouquets and botanical products. We’re continually expanding our bespoke offering. These are available in our boutique retail store and online store.

Alongside our standard range, we’ve just released our debut collection:
The Opus Earth Collection.

The work we do will always to be botanically minded, but we’re excited to experiment with what nature provides as we continue to establish Opus as a leading botanical design studio.
