Omos New Zealand
Omos South Pacific is a dynamic partnership between Omos Ireland and New Zealand manufacturing engineers, A.E. Tilley Ltd. Together we’re bringing the region a fresh and innovative approach to street and park furniture.
We specialise in the best; design and engineering go hand in hand in every Omos product. Our clean uncluttered European designs form a natural synergy between the aesthetic and the functional requirements of each product we produce.
Whilst we are rightly perceived as a ‘high-end’ provider of unquestionable quality, Omos products are manufactured right here in New Zealand, ensuring that we deliver quality designed street furniture at competitive prices.
We combine the very best in state of art technology and old world skill, resulting in a new standard in street and park furniture. We use locally sourced and certified materials of the highest quality, ensuring our tried and tested European designs keep New Zealand pure, while conforming to our environment.
Merrion Square was originally a private square for the sole use of local residents. It was purchased by the Catholic church in 1930 with the intention of building a cathedral on the site. This never materialised and Dublin Corporation took over ownership of the park in 1974.
DCC are undertaking a broad scale renovation of Merrion Square Park. These works are being guided by the Conservation & Management Plan which was completed in 2014. Re-establishing the English Landscape parkland layout is the main focus of the renovation works. This will involve the clearing of large swathes of inappropriate and overplanted areas as well as the removal, and in some cases, the replacement of some of the park’s elements.
Georges Street, Newbridge is at the heart of the busy country town and is located midway along the Main Street running North West between it and Eyre Street. A number of years ago well know artist, Ann Meldon Hugh was commissioned to create a number of sculptures depicting the tradition of trade in the town.
The original plan was to mount this pieces on the building facades but it was later decided that they would gain more prominence if they were displayed in cases along the street. Omos liaised with the council and the artist to arrive at a solution which was both sympathetic to the works of art while meeting the practical needs of the council.
