Laurent was approached by National Parks and Wildlife Service NSW who are the caretakers of Cape Byron’s iconic Lighthouse.
The lighthouse museum’s curators wanted to add small artefacts to the displays while keeping them safe.
The lighthouse was constructed in 1901, and the building is heritage-listed. As part of the brief, Laurent was not allowed to interfere with the existing shelving or brick work. He was also required to use Hoop Pine to match existing cabinetry. (You will notice the colour tones do not as the new materials have not oxidised and matured yet.)
The result is a perfectly fitting cabinetry featuring stainless steel dome nuts with a hand painted black patina finish and perspex curved front.
