david harber stand at chelsea flowers how 2023 lit by john cullen lighting

Once again we will be shining a light on Chelsea Flower Show this year. Firstly we are lighting up David Harber‘s stand of incredible sculptures and garden which provides a vibrant and energetic scene to appreciate the artworks. Most of the sculptures now contain our lighting, and we will also be lighting the fabulous garden designed by renowned US landscape design practise, James Doyle Design Associates.

Launching at Chelsea is Florio, inspired by David’s never-waning passion for the natural environment Florio acts as a sculptural embodiment of plant growth.  The elegantly curving copper flutes of each layer morph skyward in mesmerising form, with the gilded flutes exuding a lustrous warm glow – a nod to the critical role of pollination on our planet.
