Les Meubles du Repos

The Rock Bench in the forest

The Rock Bed

Three pieces of site specific furniture from PLANT’s Le Jardin du Repos – one of eight temporary gardens commissioned for the inaugural year of the International Garden Festival at Métis, Québec – were selected to be reinstalled in the new Mitis River Park adjacent to the historical Reford gardens. The new thirty-acre park focuses on environmental and ecological planning and sensibility. A new setting provided new contexts for interpretations of the furniture pieces: they were moved from the intimate garden to the vast forested landscape of the park. The pieces make reference to the same local landscape, but now their focus on intimate and singular experience is taken to the extreme.
