Title: Post Master Gallery Fitout
Location: The Post Master Gallery
Exhibition Design: Rosemary Simons
Client: Australia Post

Design Brief: To design a suite of refined showcases and wall panels to suit a variety of exhibition purposes but which can also be stored within a very small space.

Design Notes: Designing elegant and discreet furniture in itself is not too daunting but requiring these same showcases to readily compact for storage, makes for a formidable brief.

Storage was addressed in three ways: building of a double stud wall with a storage cavity within, the ability of the glass showcase tops to connect together by use of removable brass fittings, and designing wall panels and bases that can be unlocked from their footings and collapse flat.

Versatility is enhanced by the Tasmanian Myrtle and perspex showcase bases, which can be used singly or in pairs, mixing with interchangeable glass tops of various sizes.

Optional rods, integrated into the assembly system, facilitate the hanging of shelves and framed works within the showcases.
Wall panels too, vary in size and are panelled either in timber or perspex.
