88 Restaurant 

Australian Open 2019

The brief was for 88 to have a premium focus, with a subdued colour palette, inspired by top restaurants from around the world. The venue challenged the brief, at 740 square metres and with a ceiling height of 6m, it was both bland and vast.

Using floor to ceiling drapes CHARD created a versatile restaurant catering for 424 guests in a range of group sizes, achieving an ultimate sense of luxury and intimacy.
