• Lighting up a new Tasmanian Hotel

May 05, 2017

Our favourite lighting designer, Duncan Meerding, whose Cracked Log Lamps we feature on the store, has been hard at work creating lights for the soon-to-open MACq01 Hotel in Hobart, Tasmania.

Calling itself the 'storytelling hotel', the MACq01 aims to tell the stories of Tasmania's history and, specifically, 114 of the characters who famously or infamously make up its colourful past.

duncan-meerding-cracked-log-lampDuncan's lighting, which uses salvaged logs destined to be burnt, will be perfect for this hotel. His specially created Log Banker's Lamp and Cracked Lop Lamps will offer the ideal ambience for a place that wishes to exude history and tell tales of the past.

We can't wait to see his lights in situ when the MACq01 Hotel opens in June this year, 2017!
