What do Nathan Burkett and Woodform Architectural have in common? If you were going to say they are both passionate about great design and obsessive about quality and attention to detail, you’d be right…
But right now they have something else in common too: the Nathan Burkett designed display at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. While award-winning landscape designer Nathan Burkett isn’t revealing his display at the show on Wednesday, we do know that it will feature Woodform’s Concept Click batten sceening system in Burnt Ash thermally-modified timber.
We chatted to Nathan yesterday to find out why he chose to use Burnt Ash in this year’s design.
He tells us Burnt Ash was chosen because it has a very subtle colour; it is sophisticated and has class, with a beautiful grain running through. The timber is an important element that adds softness to the garden. On a more practical note, Nathan points out that Burnt Ash doesn’t leach any tannins, which is important when using timber alongside white stone. Concept Click was chosen because the team only has 9 days to install the stand; so it is important for to have a product that is fast to install. Nathan is obsessive about detail, and the Concept Click system offers perfect spacing that cannot be achieved with other systems.
