For its Seattle pop-up, Kwong partnered with cult beauty brand, Glossier, on the design, production and installation of a verdant landscape inspired by the area’s natural topography.
The bright space was filled with plant-covered mounds of varying sizes highlighted by splashes of pink and purple wildflowers in peak season. Live moss, Mexican feather grass and flowering shrubs were among the array of species used to adorn the hills, which were constructed using wooden ribs and wire mesh. Many of the plants were indigenous to the region, and all of the vegetation was locally sourced.
The botanical installation paid homage to the remarkable mountain ranges and rolling meadows of Washington, including Mount Rainier. The landscape featured florals, plants and moss all sourced locally in the Seattle area and which were repurposed as part of a charitable regifting initiative following the end of the pop-up.
