On the occasion of the 2024 edition of RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Italian Landscape Designer and Gardener Giulio Giorgi has partnered with WASP for the creation of an unprecedented 3D-printed sensory ceramic garden in collaboration with World Child Cancer UK.

The “World Child Cancer’s Nurthering Garden” comes as a haven that supports emotional wellbeing for children undergoing cancer treatment and their families on behalf of World Child Cancer UK. The Garden is fully funded by Project Giving Back.

“What is a sensory garden? It's a garden that lets children live in the moment and connect with nature while being treated at the hospital. Touching, smelling, tasting… those sensory experiences let them forget for a little while the hard time they're living through.” – says Giulio Giorgi describing the idea behind the project.

The challenge was to create a garden concept that could be easily replicated and adapted to different environmental and climatic contexts, allowing it to be reproduced in hospitals where NGOs such as World Child Cancer UK operate. In order to achieve this goal, a simple yet effective stackable ceramic module was designed by Giulio Giorgi and Professor Giuseppe Fallacara of the Polytechnic University of Bari, allowing for full customisation and easy relocation of the garden.

The manufacturing of the modules was carried out by WASP, which, thanks to its Clay 3D Printing Farm, produced over 600 units in less than two months. This massive ceramic manufacture was made possible by WASP 40100 Production, the automated system for customised serial production that enables 24/7 printing, allowing for the creation of massive series of ceramic products with personalised designs.
