Welcome to “The Secret Garden,” an enchanting place overflowing with lush greenery that was created to captivate the imagination and attention of its users. Designed to be something somewhat magical, in this little wonderland, which sits in the middle of a beautiful garden, is a collection of cocoons created from over 10,000 leftover hazelnut branches, each sheltering an array of stunningly dramatic azure lamps. Created for the 2012 Salone Del Mobile, the project was a collaborative effort between firms Barovier & Toso and Citco. As where the designers intent, when walking through this “Secret Garden,” you are immediately transported to a fairy tale like place overflowing with mesmerizing scenery. As you walk up to these bold blue nests, with a resolute to take a peek through the little custom cutouts, you’ll find yourself immediately blown away by the over embellished glass blown chandeliers and ornamented marble finishes.
