UNCONVENTIONAL DESIGN OF THE BULL RING GATE AT CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW

Bull Ring Gate

Chelsea Flower Show, Chelsea Embankment, London, SW3 4LW

Price: Not available
Starts: Tue 23rd May
Ends: Sat 27th May

The 2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show marks the second year the iconic Bull Ring entrance gate, situated on the bank of the River Thames, has been commissioned for design.

Robert Hornsby from In Water Flowers who has built his career on pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo is the lead designer of the unconventional, original design named ‘Neoteric’, meaning fresh and new, representing the RHS’ forward thinking approach to the show this year.

The design, sponsored by the RHS and inspired by the London skyline, will see five metre high soaring shards of 15,000 white, pink and purple ombre’d Colombian carnations leaning lazily on the pillars at the entrance gate to welcome visitors in.

This fresh, youthful design doesn’t stop at the arch - step into Chelsea and you’ll also come across two metal boxes lay broken on the floor, as if they have been dropped from a height, spilling out hundreds of overflowing cream, fuchsia and burgundy carnations that look as if they were supposed to be used for something else. This unfinished, contemporary look and feel that breaks Chelsea’s typical tradition will no doubt get spectators talking about this new youthful injection to the show, something In Water Flowers is encouraging!

For the first time ever at Chelsea, the Bull Ring Gate will also be lit up at night, like the London skyline, so that even if you can’t make it to the show yourself, you can still admire it’s beauty from afar. Get your phones at the ready as it's the perfect spot for a picture!

This extraordinary design was installed with the help of 34 people, including 12 volunteers and a production team of eight over course of three days.
