VIP guests representing industries from design, government, CRE, aviation, financial services to communications gathered for the long awaited launch of the Porter, Haworth’s unique collaboration with xFriends partners to experiment with a new type of space.
June 3rd, 2014
Live art installations, big-band jazz and speakeasy hospitality formed the backdrop for over 200 guests to experience the Porter – a fully hosted and managed business lounge designed to facilitate quality meetings, collaboration and workshops. Housed within the landmark 1 O’Connell building in the heart of the Sydney CBD, the vision of the Porter was to create an organic space that reinvents itself based on how its members and the community engages with the space over time. The concept of the Porter was developed by Haworth, Lend Lease and design firm 2d3d (now Gensler) and is powered by the Haworth xFriends platform.
