The brief was to add an organic feel to Federation Square in Melbourne through the development of the new outdoor comfort zones.
The design was inspired by an Australian rock garden theme, with plants and foliage sprouting from the rocky ground of Federation Square. Illustrations are based on Australian plants, with the colour palette of the landscape – the desert, eucalyptus and black box natives. The brightly coloured furry garden tool displays in the furniture storage units are an artistic interpretation of the potting shed. Designs were developed over the deck chairs, directors chairs, cushions, umbrellas and storage units.
Winner of the Melbourne Design Award 2013 for Graphic Design in the Environment.
