Pathways Fossil Seats

Pathways Fossil Seat

Pathways Fossil Seat

Client: Pine Rivers Shire Council
Materials: steel, ironbark, cold cast bronze, concrete
Features: custom LED lighting, seats designed to fit over large culvets
Completed: 2005

These large bench seats feature a treated concrete centre embedded with cold cast bronze Diprotodon bones. The Diprotodon is an extinct animal which lived throughout Australia during the Pleistocene period.

The seats perform a dual task, masking large drains as well as providing seating. The pavers leading to each seat feature impressions of plants common to both modern times and the Pleistocene period. Each seat has 8 LED light fixtures, 4 of which were custom designed and built for this project.
