Water Tank - Full Tank, LUMI, Blue, circa 2005 Object Reg. No: HT 19681

Summary:
This LUMI water tank was designed and produced by architect and sculptor Katrina Logan of Full Tank. It was designed from a landscape architecture perspective to be an attractive and aesthetically appealing urban alternative to existing water tanks. It was first produced in 1999 and is available in various sizes.

It is rectangular in shape and comprises a generic polyethylene inner water holding tank and a Plexiglas (German acrylic) outer casing. The blue outer casing is UV resistant and glows in sunlight revealing rainwater reserves stored inside the tank. Low energy consumption LEDs (mounted on a thin wood panel at the top of the tank) with a life span of up to 50,000 hours illuminate the tank and water level at night. There are two silver coloured lever taps on the front of the tank. This LUMI tank has a storage capacity of 300 litres.
Description:
Light grey plastic cyclinder with black fixings for taps and a black filter on the top. There is an inscription printed on the side and a serial number engraved into the top rim.
