Peter Tasker on Heritage to Contemporary Projects with Murobond Paints. February 19, Albion Centre, Surry Hills, 6.30 - 8.00 pm. Peter Tasker, director of Australian paint manufacturer Murobond, will share with us his insights into the varied interior and architectural projects that have specified Murobond paints. These projects include many landmark Australian heritage sites, the contemporary Australian Islamic Centre in Melbourne by architects Glen Murcutt and Hakan Elevli and many subtly sophisticated interior and exterior colour treatments of contemporary residential and commercial buildings. In addition to colour design professionals, the talk will be of value to anyone with an interest in Australian heritage sites and contemporary Australian architecture. Peter Tasker and his brother Geoff founded Murobond paints in 1988 after travelling in Europe and being inspired by the soft earthy natural paints of Provence and Tuscany. Since its inception Murobond has built on three pillars of aesthetics, technology and the environment to create interior and exterior paints that offer rich, individual finishes and textures. Murobond’s strong environmental focus minimises the environmental impact of their paints through careful product selection, product usage and waste management. Creative collaborations with contemporary stylists have culminated in the wonderful paint collections of Mr Jason Grant and The Society Inc. by Sibella Court. Wednesday February 19th, 2020, Albion Centre, Ground Floor, 349 Crown Street (entry corner of Albion and Crown Streets), Surry Hills. $30 non-members/ $20 CSA members/ $15 students, including light refreshments. Please book by Monday February 17 on the CSA website. https://coloursociety.org.au/event-3725820.
