Workspace was honoured to be invited to be involved in the landmark MPavilion project. MPavilion is a unique architecture commission and design event for Melbourne, initiated by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation with support from City of Melbourne and the Victorian State Government. Each year for the next four years an outstanding architect will be commissioned to design a temporary pavilion for the Queen Victoria Gardens, in the centre of the vibrant Southbank Arts Precinct.
Workspace worked with stakeholders to manufacture a range of custom Sean Godsell MPavilion chairs and tables to furnish this amazing space. Bringing together Laminex Freestyle sold surface moulded into a unique integrated back and seat single form, and powder coated steel frames. The outcome is a aesthetically pleasing simple and rugged seat and table set that appears to float above the rustic flooring and the open walls and roof of the M Pavilion space.
The beauty of this project in addition to the architecture and furniture design is the open application and use by the community.
