The ultimate garden hideaway

This year’s RHS Tatton Flower Show will feature a first – an exhibit that hopes to remain invisible! Perspex Distribution approved fabricators Floreeda Fabrications have been working with Manchester School of Art to clad a garden shed in Plaskolite Mirror sheets.

'The Invisibility Tardis Shed of Navel Contemplation' is a Manchester School of Art entry in the 'Garden Hideaways' project (aka 'Pimp My Shed'!).  The challenge is to transform a plain garden shed into an amazing hideaway. 

The original design was thought up by Manchester School of Art Outreach Manager, Clare Knox Bentham, and uses Plaskolite acrylic mirror from Perspex Distribution to reflects its surrounding environment.

Clare said: “It’s certainly not the sort of thing you would expect in the middle of a garden show.  An invisible shed make it the perfect secret place to escape the world.”

Paul Jones, Director of Floreeda adds “We really enjoy producing work for Manchester Metropolitan University’s School of Art and their students.  We are used to being asked to create the weird and wonderful and this project was no exception”.

The ‘invisible shed’ scooped the top prize in the ‘Shed of the Year’ competition at the show. 

The RHS Tatton Flower Show takes place between 22nd – 26th July 2015.
