• 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.
