About The Tree Canopy

This Spring, Treehouse Hotel London is delighted to welcome ‘The Tree Canopy’, a specially curated light installation by famed British sculptor and light artist Raphael Daden, to the hotel’s entrance lobby and The Nest.

Daden collected and pressed a number of different tree leaves from London’s Kew Gardens and other locations around the UK, such as oak, London plane, sycamore and maple, to create the sculptures.

Powered by Diageo, the installation not only aims to showcase the beauty of the leaves, their patterns and vibrant yet warm colours, but encourages guest interaction and discussion on a poignant message of how important trees are to our planet.

Meet the Artist

Raphael Daden is a UK-based sculptor working mainly with light.

Raphael's connection with the natural world - having grown up on the Somerset Levels - continues to inform much of his work. In 2006 a Research and Development Grant awarded by Arts Council England allowed Raphael to develop a series of artworks in response to the potential impact of climate change on the landscape, fabricating small pieces based around colour and light for galleries. He has subsequently created a series of stone carvings and a steel and light sculpture for Milnsbridge (near Huddersfield), responding to local history and affirming connections between the traditional and the modern within his work.
