Museum of the Goldfields WA, Australia (2020)

This gold-mining heritage museum in Kalgoorlie, a regional town in Western Australia, now features moveable street furniture in a glorious summery palette.

Aria Seats, Cafe Round Tables and Stools, Forum Seats and Forum Low Tables are powder coated in tailored Sunshine Gloss and standard Sensation Orange, Lycra Strip and Bondi Blue. Some of the frames match the battens, some are finished in Textura Monument.

The Museum says the furniture is colour matched to represent all six Western Australian Museum locations, spread across the state and representing social and natural histories of the land and sea.

“The Western Australian Museum’s mission is to inspire people to explore and share knowledge with one another. Introducing this furniture activates our outdoor area, creating a safe and welcoming space for our community to do just that,” they say.

The orange, green and blue powdercoats are from our UV-resistant DuraBright range – ideal for Kalgoorlie’s hot climate.

Kingscliff Foreshore

This $22-million foreshore revitalisation is designed to create a link between the beach, the new central park and the CBD for the highly engaged Kingscliff community. The project conducted community consultation at several points, to make a place that locals can call their own. “Everyone who has worked on this project has done an outstanding job and I know the community is excited to take ownership of their new park,” said Mayor of Tweed Shire, Councillor Katie Milne. Landscape Architect Ian Bentley led the design for Council, he says, “Before Rowan Robinson Park there wasn’t a place in Kingscliff for large gatherings, to watch bands, to accommodate thirty kids at a birthday party or a place to hang out and watch others pass by. With its completion the community now …

Woden Experiment

A six-month prototype installation aiming to bring life, joy and comfort to Canberra’s Woden Town Square, supported by the ACT Government. The concept, designed by Context, features places to work, dine, meet and play.

The concept is based around creating experiences for each of the six personas identified during the Discovery: Mum with pram, who attends Story Time at the library and grocery shops …

12 Moore Street, Canberra

Aria Seats and Simple Bins have been optimised for long-term maintenance and to complement the shape of the space at 12 Moore Street, Canberra. The Aria two-seaters and curved configurations fit around planter corners with 90 degree connector modules, and in sheltered nooks. The round 80L Simple Bins match the seats, featuring Textura Monument frames and aluminium woodgrain Spotted Gum battens. These batten and frame materials are an ideal combination for easy cleaning and maintenance. The textured and anti-mar Textura powdercoat range is highly recommended for bins, as it is easy to wipe clean. Woodgrain aluminium provides a warm timber look – recommended for places with cold climates such as Canberra – without the need for regular oiling. The refurbishment of this ground floor entrance has “modernised and refreshed” the …
