THE GALERIES – SYDNEY
botton + gardiner worked closely with Three Fishes to bring their fun concept of a graphic and vibrant bin to life. These bin and tray returns were to be located in the busy foodcourt of The Galeries Sydney, managed by Vicinity and part of an upgrade to spruce up the interior. The brief for this project revolved around the style and budget. Three Fishes were playing around with themes of graffiti art, shapes and bold colour. The final resolved design used a double layer on the door panels to achieve a bright coloured, multidimensional look. The top layer is galvanised steel with the corner rolled, supported by a welded piece of round bar to keep the form steady and powdercoated. The second layer is coloured compact, engraved with lettering exposing the black core. The tray return bay is a simple border incorporated into the bin frame.
