Just when you thought Sketch couldn’t get any more aesthetically pleasing, the entirety of No. 9 Conduit Street is being transformed into a series of immersive floral displays and gardens to coincide with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019.
The beautiful displays will run from the facade to the oh-so-pretty Parlour to the famous bathroom pods, thanks to top florists such as Thierry Boutemy, JamJar Flowers, Figa & Co, Carly Rogers, Tony Marklew, Ricky Paul and Rebel Rebel.
This year, sketch will also be looking beyond the floricultural sphere, bringing together a cast of close creative collaborators working with craft materials to support the installations including designer Tino Seubert, screen printers Insley & Nash, textiles studio Timorous Beasties and creative studio Hato Press.
The Façade by Rebel Rebel
At street level, the show starts at The Rebel’s Gallery is Rebel Rebel’s vision for sketch’s street front. Bold and beautiful floral frameworks hang onto the facade, each window features Leonardo Da Vinci's most well know works, marking the 500th anniversary of his death.
Entrance Hall by Figa & Co and Timorous Beasties
Figa & Co’s fantasy mural installation, drawing inspiration from 18th century neo-romantic trompe l’oeil frescos. Timorous Beasties jumped on board featuring some of their signature patterns, adding chic irreverence to Figa & Co’s daydream garden.
Reception Area by JamJar
The next sketch plot is allocated to JamJar, presenting 'The Lost Room' an indoor garden designed as an homage to William Morris’ Arts & Crafts style.
The Glade (Salon Champagne Pommery) by Thierry Boutemy
Thierry Boutemy, the Belgian flower artist has transformed the enchanted evergreen Glade into a surrealist suspended garden.
The East Bar & Pods by Carly Rogers Flowers
'At Jane’s' is Carly’s vision for sketch’s renowned bathroom space. Insley & Nash have created a ‘sky’ to sit on top of Carly Rogers’ garden, a two piece jigsaw of fabric printed with a scene of a day and night sky.
Lecture Room & Library by Ricky Paul Flowers & Tino Seubert
Voyage Voyage is the installation imagined by Ricky Paul Flowers. The scheme features an air balloon entirely cladded with flowers, features and fabric.
The Mayfair Flower Show will run alongside the Chelsea Flower Show from May 17 to May 29 at 9 Conduit Street, London, W1S 2XG. sketch.london
