In 2008 artist, Ann Meldon Hugh was commissioned to create five bronze relief panels depicting the tradition of trade for George's Street in Newbridge town centre, Ireland. The original plan was to mount the 7' sculptures on the building facades. It was later decided that they should be more prominently displayed in cases along the street, to bring them more into the public view.
Omos worked with Kildare County Council and the artist to arrive at a solution that was both sympathetic to the works of art and met the practical needs of the Council.
The cases are constructed from plate stainless steel and toughened glass to produce a minimalist aesthetic, in material of a matching quality to the works themselves. The simplistic design of the cases does not distract from the sculptures and protects them from the elements and any unwanted attention from the public.
The s83 seat and bench with bush hammered stone ends and s16.2 litter bin was chosen as street furniture for the scheme.
