The Secret Garden by Zaha Hadid & Paola Navone

View all 14 Photos

Imagine living inside of a fairytale, revisiting Alice in Wonderland over and over again, the Secret Gardens is an installation presented during Salone Del Mobile 2012 that does exactly that. Conceptualized at the Orto Botanico of Brera by two internationally acclaimed companies Barovier & Toso and Citco, they successfully achieved the idea of a fully interactive garden that’s lush and beautiful. The installation was interpreted by the Paola Navone for Barovier & Toso and Zaha Hadid for Citco, who created magical lighting installations and chandeliers along with ornamented marble for surfaces. Hidden from the leafy surroundings, giant aeries in various forms and comprised of over 10,000 leftover hazelnut branches from the springtime pruning, lie on the ground or float in the air. The Secret Garden is mysterious yet meditative, providing a therapeutic experience away from the frenzy of the design week.
