Populous Elevates John Cain Arena Interiors Using SUPAWOOD's Wave Blades

In a dynamic collaboration with Populous, new life was breathed into Melbourne's iconic John Cain Arena Western (VIP) Lounge. The design overhaul elevated the guest facilities within the private hospitality area that overlooks the Arena and offers one of the most styligh experiences in Melbourne. 

In addition to being able to create the unique Populous design for the new ceiling in the VIP area, they required the project to be completed within a short lead time as the venue was needed for the Australian Open that was just a few weeks away. Of equal importance was that the product needed to meet Fire Group 2 compliance. The SUPAWOOD team rose to the challenge and delivered on both requirements.

The VIP lounge area, also known as the Western Lounge was transformed using SUPAWOOD's premium quality wave blades made from the stunning Blackbutt SUPAFINISH. The bespoke feature ceiling added warmth to the interior of the lounge and they were supplied in linear lengths of five paddles each that were pre-assembled for fast and easy installation.

The sophisticated new lounge area allows guests to enjoy their chosen event from the privacy of the VIP lounge which offers exclusive benefits such as a cocktail bar and networking space as well as providing direct access to the courtside seating area. 

SUPAWOOD's Wave Blade ceiling system has become a go-to choice for unique interior transformations. When choosing wave blades, designers are provided with a 3D modelling service to achieve the perfect contoured wooden blade feature for their specific project. This service helps alleviate any stress that may be caused during the design process. Wave Blades come in both standard and custom options and are equipped with a straightforward fixing system to expedite installation.
