Australian Open 2018
Responding to Tennis Australia's brief CHARD International created The Lounge as an exclusive VIP private cocktail lounge with a contemporary and eclectic interior. The Lounge is one of a number of
ephemeral spaces CHARD has been creating for the annual Australian Open. The Lounge was first presented at the 2016 Australian Open and due to its popularity it has continued at each tournament.
The Lounge is based in a 150 square metre venue accommodating 110 guests.
CHARD's 2018 Lounge was designed as an experimental space responding to the venues arty clientele. The room with its bold colours, thick striped wallpaper and foil drapes had an emphasis on fun.
