Next May 21 will open the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019, always the largest and most important floral exhibition in Britain, which will show innovative projects related to the environment. Although more than a week to go before the official presentations, there is already a project that has attracted the interest of many. This is Gardening Will Save the World, born from the renewed collaboration between Tom Dixon and IKEA.
The British designer and the giant of the real estate industry have joined forces to explore more deeply the concept of urban agriculture, creating a real apartment garden.
The Chelsea Flower Show will showcase a model of an urban garden that is perfect for growing any type of plant or vegetable. The garden will be divided into two levels, the first hosting the actual horticultural laboratory, the raised one, instead, is a kind of botanical oasis. Gardening Will Save the World is designed to host about 400 plants.
The project by Tom Dixon and IKEA will certainly revolutionise the concept of sustainability, bringing greenery back to the big cities.
