Blue Angel


Ninety percent of everything we use comes to us via the sea – with the help of over a million seafarers working around the globe and around the clock in harsh conditions. Blue Angel is a collaboration with this global community of workers. In its premiere Hobart season, guests of the Blue Angel project stayed overnight in the iconic Astor Hotel, experiencing stories of the sea in multiple spaces. The main aesthetics inspiration was the ubiquitous container, reimagined with carved marine ply in various iterations, including a “Seafarer’s Chest” which contained a guest’s crockery, bedding and small, intimate story mementoes from a seafarer’s life.
