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