Logan’s award winning ‘LUMI – Illuminated rainwater storage’ makes an important contribution to the future of water conservation and design.
"As a designer, I was inspired to repackage an old rural icon – the Australian rainwater tank – as a contemporary architectural object that would engage city dwellers with an important and necessary lifestyle change (water saving). LUMI was driven by my desire to integrate water conservation and architecture, with aesthetics in mind... LUMI is an object to be displayed not hidden. I envisaged the balconies of high-rise buildings as LUMI's ultimate destination. "
LUMI is installed in residences and gardens around Australia and is held in the state collection of Museum Victoria. LUMI won the City of Melbourne Sustainability Design Award in 2006 and garnered media attention world-wide.
LUMI has been published in numerous national and international design magazines including Houses, Vogue Living, SDQ and Wallpaper. LUMI was included in 1000 New Eco Products (R. Proctor, 2009) and 1000 Designs for the Garden (Rudge, 2010). In 2008 LUMI was featured on the US television series ‘Alter Eco’ hosted by Entourage star Adrian Grenier.
