A Royal Horticultural Society award-winning conceptual garden made entirely of Zanussi refrigerators will be displayed in the grounds of Capel Manor College, a leading center for horticultural excellence in the UK.

Zanussi is a European brand of appliance maker Electrolux.

Members of the public are invited to visit the sculpture, named "Tip of the Iceberg," in the gardens of Capel Manor College, Enfield, where it will be on display until the summer of 2014.

In June 2013 garden artists John Esling and Caroline Tait were awarded the Silver-gilt medal for their innovative garden sculpture, made from 36 Zanussi refrigerators that had reached the end of their useful lives.

The sculpture will be displayed as an example of how everyday products can be recycled into something beautiful. The sculpture will be the focus of events for gallery owners and horticultural groups and will also be used as a discussion point in design classes.

"Tip of the Iceberg serves to continually elicit new opinion on art and gardening but also on refrigeration issues that Zanussi support such as reducing food miles, food preservation and reduction of food waste, as well as recycling and efficiency," said Caroline Tait, the designer of the sculpture. "There is great synergy between the sculpture and the college's ethos. Capel Manor has a market garden with a veg box scheme and a vineyard and so strives to attain very similar goals to Zanussi regarding food supply."
