Where space meets community. The Quad cultural precinct is the ‘community heart’ that unites all of Lismore as a creative playground. Showcasing a broad range of dynamic collaborations, the Quad creates a unique cultural precinct, where people come together united by the power of community and creativity.
The space connects four vital precincts; Lismore Regional Gallery, Lismore City Library, Northern Rivers Conservatorium, and Social Futures Clubhouse. The activation of the Quad as Lismore's creative playground is a strategic partnership between Southern Cross University and Lismore City Council.
The custom furniture pieces were designed to be mobile so they could be easily moved around on the site and used as desired. As a result brightly coloured stacking stools and seats with generous overall dimensions and softer, more playful, corner details were delivered for the project. UV weather resistant plastics and minimal support frames with concealed fixings were used to ensure the products have a much longer design life than typical ‘off-the-shelf’ offerings.
