Zuri LoungeOoh la la - Zuri Lounge

19th century elegance meets 21st century opulence is the catch cry for Zuri Lounge, a redeveloped nightclub and music lounge in Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley. The brief called for a design that is ‘really fine and beautiful’.

The inspiration for the sumptuous scene came from a piece of fabric that Ryder Hampton had kept for two decades waiting patiently for a project brave enough to let it loose. The fabric was traced back to source and while the fabric has been long since deleted, the original Belgian maker agreed to recreate the fabric for the project using archived cards. With such a strong design element, other selections had to also be powerful to ensure that they weren’t overshadowed. The ceilings were no exception.

Fittingly, the VIP room has a ceiling in Resene Enamacryl Metallic tinted to Resene Bullion (copper gold), while ceilings in other rooms gleam with a palette of Resene Rockstar (red black metallic) and Resene Adrenalin Junkie (bold red metallic), moving to grey tones in the form of Resene Foundry (shadowy charcoal) in the toilets and Resene Concrete (frosted grey) in the kitchen working area. The metallic ceilings play with the light adding to the heady atmosphere.

A feast for the eyes, Zuri also promises a feast for your body and soul.
