Nordic Sky is the first Danish contribution ever to be selected to the prestigious garden exhibition Chaumont sur Loire Garden Festival.
‘The Nordic sky is very special. It has a subtle intensity that creates the special Nordic light. The often changing colours of greys and blues have a simple understated powerfulness. Nordic design could be described with the same words and it is our ambition is to create a garden that reflects that kind of uncomplicated aesthetics you find both in the Nordic light and in Nordic design.’
‘Strong contrasts in textures and colours are playing an importing role in creating the right ambience. Contrasts, such as the dark spruce ‘forest’ versus the light Willow trees, dark tiles versus light gravel, and the ‘heavy’ rustic log screen versus the light ‘sky’ glass screen are all contributing to the creation of a unique garden based on few simple elements but full of atmosphere.’
