When Kate Gould Gardens asked Anglepoise® to provide lamps from our new Original 1227™ Giant Outdoor Collection to grace her City Living showpiece at Chelsea, we seized the opportunity. What better way to showcase these striking new designs than in association with a three times gold medallist at the world’s most prestigious garden design show.
So when Kate went on to scoop not only her fourth Gold Medal for this year’s City Living showpiece at Chelsea Flower last week but also her third ‘best in category” Anglepoise® was proud to have played a small part in this achievement.
A thought-provoking Fresh Garden with a strong environmental message, ‘City Living’ reimagined and transformed a multi-level apartment block, introducing at every conceivable opportunity a series of attractive mini gardens. The aim: to highlight the importance of greening up inner city spaces by creating enriching outdoor green spaces for communal use while also providing nature corridors for birds and other wildlife. Anglepoise® Original 1227™ Giant floor and wall mounted lamps become striking illuminated sculptures within the tranquil seating areas of Kate’s visionary garden, their Fresh Orange colour contrasting with and enhancing the lush green planting.
