The David Harber x Savills stand at Chelsea 2022 was awarded five stars. Prime inspiration came from the Nuttery at Sissinghurst, one of the big spring attactions at Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson's former home.
“Our design is inspired by the Nuttery in Sissinghurst which is one of the most captivating places to be in the month of May – when we celebrate the fresh green of leaves unfurling, spring bulbs dancing above herbaceous grasses and trees coming freshly into leaf, says stand designer Emily Erlam.
Emily is a planting specialist who has won several awards from the Society of Garden Designers including the Planting Design Award. She likes creating spaces that will make people feel good. She is one of House & Garden's top 50 designers for 2022.Scroll for more
The stand, co-sponsored by luxury real estate provider Savills, featured the first official reveal of Bite II – designed exclusively for this year's show – with a hole and a mesmerising reflective tunnel; and Teardrop Mantle, a unique iteration of Harber's popular Mantle artwork.
The patterns of Teardrop Mantle provided a second source of design inspiration for the stand. Emily Erlam explains: “we fell in love with the balance of mass and void this creates, making beautiful organic spaces for planting, decoration and movement throughout the space.”
Richard Rees, Savills UK Managing Director, says: “Having outside space continues to be a key requirement for our clients, no matter how big or small. Sculpture can form a central part to any outside space, which is why our continued partnership with the highly-acclaimed David Harber at Chelsea is really exciting.”
