LG garden reimagines sustainable living at 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show
LG Electronics is supporting its dedication to sustainable living in a partnership with landscape architect Hay Joung Hwang.
Hwang will create the ‘Eco-City’ show garden for the 2018 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show, reimagining inner-city living in harmony with LG’s commitment to ‘Innovation for a Better Life’.
The design utilises innovative technology to address environmental issues posed by contemporary lifestyles. It aims to reduce pollution through the use of specially selected trees, plants and shrubs, and provides a replicable blueprint for inner-city high rises.
The garden will be both self-sufficient and energy-efficient. The latest aquaponics systems will be used to provide nutrients from fish-waste to nourish a vertical vegetable and herb farm, and new solar technologies will replace conventional building materials to power LED lighting that creates the perfect conditions to help vegetables and herbs grow.
“As the populations of our cities increase and more and more high-rises are built, air and noise pollution also worsens,” said Hay Joung Hwang.
“My design provides a vision for sustainable eco-city living, providing green space that can be replicated vertically in these high rises. It provides a living environment that increases people’s wellbeing, as well as directly addressing the issues of air pollution.”
Carolyn Anderson, Marketing Director at LG Electronics UK, said: “It’s a pleasure to be returning to the Chelsea Flower Show in 2018 with a garden that showcases how technological and horticultural innovation can combine to create a new way of living in our cities.”
Part of the Eco-City design shows how a spacious terrace area seamlessly connects with a beautifully-designed kitchen space with the very best built-in kitchen appliances from LG. The garden also has a relaxing seating area incorporating running water features that filter out noise pollution and immersive digital art showcased through the true-to-life colours and perfect blacks of an LG SIGNATURE OLED TV – LG’s thinnest television.
LG will work with a number of partners to create the various areas of the garden.
