Trailfinders Australian Garden - Chelsea Flower Show

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

MakMax’s client, Flemings Nurseries exhibits annually at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show, one of the world most prestigious social and horticultural events. Fleming’s often win awards for their unique exhibition stands.  MakMax was engaged to bring an architect’s design to life in the form of a unique temporary structure for Fleming’s entry at the 2011 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

DESIGN / FABRICATION / INSTALLATION BRIEF

Our client, Flemings Nurseries, engaged architect, Ian Barker to design their most recent stand. The architect’s inspiration included themes of colonization and the discovery of Australia. Natural shapes and light play a large part in the design brief. The importance of the horticultural theme in the discovery of Australia is through botanist Sir Joseph Banks who along with Captain Cook first documented the unique native flora of Australia. MakMax was engaged to bring this idea to life through the architect’s vision.

Although the concept was the work of the architect, some of the technical details of manufacture were not conceptualized until MakMax engineers began looking at the design from a practical point of view. Being a self supporting structure we had a fair amount of control over the manufacture and fixing details of the project.
