RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022
This year, for RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022, we are delighted to have been able to collaborate with Malvern Garden Buildings; who have joined forces with stylist and curator, James Whiting of @Plantsbythere to create Planet Studio – a Studio 54 inspired Houseplant Studio for the 2022 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
James’ ultimate goal is to bring fun and a contemporary eye to a flower show steeped in tradition and heritage. Taking inspiration from the way houseplants and floral displays were used in the famous Studio 54 venue, alongside James’ love of the Palm House at Kew Gardens and childhood memories of his 90s-bedroom, Planet Studio will be an ‘out of this world’ club experience for show visitors.
For Planet Studio we have designed and created the centre piece of the room: the bar, which provides refreshments for ‘clubbing’ plants and people alike. The Mudd & Co bar has taken the limelight inside Planet Studio to transform the traditional Kew Garden Room into a contemporary garden bar and entertainment space for those wanting a piece of city nightlife in their own gardens.
No detail has been overlooked when designing this bespoke piece, housing both drinks and plants to ensure that the bar serves every purpose of James’ vision.
