Connected, by EXANTE is a cool, calm woodland sanctuary. There’s a space among the tranquillity for people to
connect inside the main feature, a fairytale larger-than-life oak stump. The unusual centrepiece has a skylight roof
encircled by a vegetated edge.
The oak home sanctuary, with charming duckboards leading in and out, is surrounded by layered European
woodland with its serene and limited colours. It is also a chic teleworking oasis with an oak-shaped water feature
window on the back wall. An innovative oak silhouette window on the front provides natural light, a view out and in,
to the water feature window.
Taina Suonio is a renowned Finnish landscape designer and environment biologist. She exhibits her own work in Chelsea Flower Show for the third time. Her Silver-Gilt-winning 2019 design “The Roots in Finland Kyrö Garden” was recycled almost in its entirety and now has a home in the side garden of the Embassy of Finland in London.
