Lump sentiMETAL moment – MIFGS 2013

As we knuckle down and start getting organised for the big Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show 2014 I’m taking a little time out for a sentiMETAL journey though MIFGS 2013. 

Way back when……

Stealing the show and winning a Gold Medal this year is Cycas Landscape Design presenting their garden “laconic”. Founder of Cycas and renowned landscape designer Mark Browning has designed the Garden using inspiration from the modernist movement of the mid twentieth century. Featuring solid contrasting colours with an emphasis on straight lines, geometry and minimalism.

Lump is featured generously in “laconic”. We love that Mark has included in his design our very own 3D Feature PanelsCircle Work” finished in Dulux colour “Bright Delight”. The 3D Feature Panels in their bright orange fashion are positioned, as a feature wall in the Pavilion. And the colour of the panels will compliment the very new and never seen before, Lump floating sculptures “Stack and Adorn”. The floating wall sculptures have been designed inline with Lumps Leaf Skeleton sculpture and re interpreted as a repetitive stackable form. This stackable form allows the sculpture to be recreated as a floating sculpture, pendant or light shade. Among all the Lumpness in Marks design will also be our “Bubbles” screen fitted in the ceiling of the pavilion as a skylight adding texture and shadow as the light filters through.

“laconic” by Mark Browning is a very tangible presentation of the style and experience entrenched in Cycas Landscape Design. And also “laconic” is a great illustration of Mark Browning’s commitment and desire for enduring and contemporary Landscape design.

Well, I did say Lump was featured in not one, but TWO medal winning gardens at this years MIFGS. And although not immersed in as much Lumpness as “laconic”, “Cube2” by Scott Wynd of TLC Pools was awarded the City Of Melbourne Award for Excellence ‘Best In Show’.  “Cube2” subtly features a little piece of Lump in the form of our stainless tipped sphere sculpture and at Lump we like to think our sculpture had a little bit to do with that prestigious award.

This year Scott handed over the reins of design to Darin Bradbury his design manager at TLC pools.  Darin designed a space that is itself contemporary and also opposite to contemporary landscape architecture.  The space is lush with planting and foliage and offers a space to sit out in the garden rather than in an out door room.   It is very obvious that the planting is the major focus in Darin’s design, and we are very proud that a little piece of Lump can be seen peeking out from the foliage in TLC pools “Best In Show” design.

See “laconic” and “Cube2”at MIFGS from the 20th – 24th of March 2013.

  • Check the creation of the SodaStream Turtle step by step in the Lump Studio workshop. @dayziart carefully places the rubbish over the skeleton to form the shell and the skin of the turtle. ALL of the rubbish was collect by @dayziart from Aussie beaches. @sodastreamau commissioned this piece as part of #oceanofthefuture a VR display that aims to help us understand the impact our waste is having on our ocean and marine life.  We are thrilled to have been included in this project along with passionate ambassadors @sodastreamau  @plasticfreesophia @cleanupaustralia  @take3forthesea  @joelparko The display is on this week at Circular Quay in Sydney #bubblesfornow  #onebottleforlife  #stoptrashingwaves
  • The Turtle created by @dayziart is positioned on top of a pod which houses a VR experience #OceanOfTheFuture developed and launched by @sodastreamau  this week. The VR experience aims to help us understand how our waste is impacting our oceans and marine life.  The installation is at The Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay in Sydney. Take your kids, you will want to make difference too @sodastreamau @joelparko  #onebottleforlife  @take3forthesea  @dayziart  @plasticfreesophia  @cleanupaustralia  @mattbarryimages  @elyse.knowles  These guys are all making the change and making a difference #everybitcounts  #BubblesForNow 
  • This is a project we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work on. It’s been under wraps for a while but this week @sodastreamau  launched #OceanOfTheFuture The initiative aims to display the devastating effects and the ongoing impacts of single use plastics on our oceans and marine life.  Our role at Lump Studio was to create the internal structure of a Turtle for @dayziart to cover with found rubbish he collected from the beach and ocean in his home town.  Swipe left, you can see just how much rubbish was collected in only a couple of weeks.  We all know it. It’s time to change our consumption habits. It’s not helpless we can make a difference @sodastreamau  #onebottleforlife  @take3forthesea  @dayziart  @plasticfreesophia  @cleanupaustralia  @mattbarryimages  @elyse.knowles  #everybitcounts #BubblesForNow
  • The “Wire Amplitudes” sculpture would look just as at home if found deep in the ocean.
