The Livingstone Shire Council engaged Urban Fountains and Furniture to design and manufacture a water fountain to celebrate Indigenous Australian history for this year’s National Reconciliation Week.

Urban Fountains and Furniture (UFF) chose their Apollo A280 water fountain for its customisable options, durability and accessibility. Consisting of a stainless steel basin, bubbler and bottle filler, the A280 fountain also features a customised recessed plaque on its side panels, which tells the story of National Reconciliation Week.

UFF’s graphic designer created a print that would flow with the design of the A280 in a sleek and readable way.

The fountain’s side panels were extended and customised to include custom photo-etched aluminium plaques, recessed into both sides of the fountain.

The commemorative fountain was installed in the municipality’s public space by the Livingstone Shire Council as part of their Reconciliation Week programme. This bespoke fountain demonstrates how customisable street furniture can be utilised to celebrate the history of our people and our places.

UFF is proud to acknowledge Australia’s traditional custodians and their landmark history in the design of the public water fountain for the Livingstone Shire Council.
