Four Pillars Gin

The design and fabrication of a display stand for Four Pillars Gin at Myer on Bourke street, Melbourne. Inspired by the rock fa├žades of Petra Jordan with their columns carved from millions of layers of sandstone; the design process began with a solid block of material that was iteratively manipulated through splitting in to layers, followed by carving out entry points, spaces, and joinery. The slender copper pillars are the backbone for the entire structure and hold up the horizontal layers, reinforcing the Four Pillars brand. Photography by Makiko Ryujin
