The Boronia luminaire and shading structures gained inspiration from the delicate petal geometry of the boronia flower to create a unique signature identity for the local community.
The column and roof of every shade structure is comprised of five individual beams, each reaching out to their surroundings with open arms tapering outwards creating a sense of lightness and motion along some of Dorset Square's key pedestrian areas. The shades are formed from vertically curled, large-scale stainless steel boronia petals. The laser cut pattern allows sprinkles of sunlight to filter through the canopies of the shading structures, creating a joyful play of light and shadow, while dramatic uplighting produces an equally spectacular effect at night.
In the case of the public lights, sparkles of reflected sunlight during the day and reflected artificial light at night add texture, drama and interest to the adjacent, otherwise bleak, cinema walls.
