Sculpture Bar's New Clothes

The Sculpture Bar at the National Gallery of Australia is a gorgeous outdoor space set within the outdoor sculpture garden. Pinkerton provided glow bars and ottoman when it first opened back in 2010. Proprietor Fiona Wright wanted furniture that was going to last several years and which could be superficially changed to reflect the Blockbuster tour each year. So in 2011 the glow bars were updated with an orange film, and now in 2012 the ottomans went black and the glow bars mirrored for the Italian Renaissance exhibition. Medieval never looked so sexy!
