David Harber's first Chelsea Show Garden!Previous Next
Judges awarded a bronze medal to the Show Garden for the celebrated RHS Chelsea Flower Show, London, England sponsored by David Harber and global real estate services provider Savills.
The garden was designed by landscape and garden designer Nic Howard as an unfolding drama of mankind's interaction with the environment over time. It showcased how bespoke sculpture and planting can tell a story and promote reflection.
The Show Garden was constructed by Nik Edser of Langdale Landscapes. This is the third time David Harber has worked with Nic and Nik at Chelsea.DOWNLOAD Exterior BROCHUREScroll for more
The concept: the planting and art starts freeform and naturalistic but as mankind evolves, become formal and controlled. Hidden at the last stage is a flaw representing our negative impact on the environment.
A pivotal view: a metaphorical wormhole through space-time – through aligned openings in three sculptural screens – framed the pivotal Aeon sculpture which symbolized a vital force that keeps the planet in equilibrium.
The garden provided David Harber with the opportunity to explore his creativity and create a thought-provoking narrative through unique, one-off pieces.
