Princes Gardens, Prahran VIC
Pole Type: Tapered Poles
As an Australian designer and manufacturer, Multipole was delighted to manufacture and supply a bespoke solution for lighting in the Princes Gardens located in Prahran in Melbourne, Victoria. The previous light poles used in the Gardens came from an overseas supplier, but due to COVID-19 impacting delivery lead times, the City of Stonnington sought a more local solution.
The tapered, aluminium and curved design could be manufactured in Australia by Multipole (Part of the Goldspar Group) using aluminium sourced from Victoria. The manufacturing process required specialised skill and experience in tapering and bending the light poles per the design specification. The poles were finished in a high gloss powder coat. The high-quality poles were delivered less than half the time of previous overseas sourced poles and provide a unique and striking lighting solution for the historic public gardens.
