A design directive for the Studio 54 Patron’s Lounge was that it work well for multiple purposes – from cocktails during intermission to lectures, lunches and meetings. We not only created the furniture plan to accommodate these events, but also designed a clandestine closet where folding chairs and tables would easily be accessed and hidden from view.
To create this secret storage space, we concealed a pre-existing alcove with a secret door. That door became art when we designed a striking sculpture to mask its purpose. By simply moving the two-piece sofa and opening this door, a storage vault magically appears, making room set-up a cinch.
