Designer Choice:
The Modern Slavery Garden

Visitors to this year’s 2016 RHS Chelsea Flower Show had ample opportunity to view Lapitec in completely new settings.

Juliet Sargeant, MSGD selected Lapitec as one of the stones used as flooring in her Modern Slavery Garden. The garden’s theme is modern slavery behind closed doors and draws attention to the 13,000 current victims of slavery in the UK.  Sargeant used the dark grey Lapitec Antracite stone in two different finishes in the heart of her garden – its ‘dark centre’ – which hints at slavery in a ‘normal’ UK Street happening behind closed doors.

Lapitec also featured as part of Solus Decor’s trade stand designed by young designer Jack Dunckley.

The Lapitec used in both areas of the Chelsea Flower Show has been worked by approved Lapitec fabricators London Stone, who commented, “It’s really exciting that two fabulous garden designers have chosen to work with Lapitec this year. We are enjoying fabricating and promoting the hard surface material – and its great news that appearing at Chelsea will help show Lapitec off to an audience of passionate gardeners and designers.”
