IconicHills Hoist

Client: Hills Industries

Design: Hills & Box & Dice

Product: 75 working scale replica Hills Hoists

Process: To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the iconic Hills Hoist, Hills commissioned Box & Dice to produce 75 working scale replicas.

Using an original sales model from the 1950’s, parts were scanned and turned into 3D files. These files were then manufactured using casting, CNC machining & turning as well as a great deal of hand fabrication. Each clothesline was strung by hand and every box glued, stapled and painted in house. The models were then placed into custom display cases and sold around Australia.
