Four Pillars Gin
Design, Fabrication

The design and fabrication of display stands for Four Pillars Gin at Myer in Melbourne, Chadstone and Sydney locations.

The objective for 2019 was designing a low impact solution with a focus on sustainability. The design is primarily composed of curved black cardboard tubing structures manufactured from recycled paper.

The timber tops and floating shelves were made from reclaimed pallets from the Four Pillars distillery in Healesville and the forescolor panelling (an FSC certified product) was repurposed from the 2018 Myer event.

Retail fixtures and joinery from a project that I completed in 2016 were reinstated for use in a new stationary shop at Melbourne airport.

It is great to see that my core value of good design x quality materials transcends time and even different brands by continuing to serve a purpose rather than ending up in landfill.

The fit for a stationary shop is perfect: the folded panels which originally suggested movement now seemingly allude to the pages of a notebook.

Commendation to the team at The Practical Man and Milligram for making this happen.

Custom lighting and a display table for hellotomato’s exhibition, Vessels.

A single circular surface was positioned in the centre of a darkened room. Two spotlights with narrow beam angles and different colour temperatures (warm and cool) were positioned overhead to highlight the artworks.

Four Pillars Gin
Design, Fabrication

The design and fabrication of a display stand for Four Pillars Gin at Myer on Bourke street, Melbourne.

The design process began with a solid block of material that was iteratively manipulated through splitting in to layers, followed by carving out entry points, spaces, and joinery. 

The slender copper pillars are the backbone for the entire structure and hold up the horizontal layers, reinforcing the Four Pillars brand.
