In what must be one of the impressive new venues to emerge in Canberra for a long time, the new Tongue & Groove bar, restaurant and lounge has already made a big impact in the nation’s capital. An outstanding interior design was created by Paul Kelly Design and incorporated 35 custom-made light pendants suspended from a motorised custom F33 Truss grid. Nova Multimedia secured the AV contract for the venue including supply and installation of the custom designed truss grid. The truss grid incorporated F33 custom lengths, singular tube and cable trays all finished in matt black to blend in with the ceiling space. The grid sits at ceiling level for daytime trading and lowers down closer to the bar during the night. A simple concept has turned into a real design feature in the venue. Nova Multimedia director, Nick was impressed. “We are proud to have been involved with the Tongue & Groove project. The lighting pendant truss grid went together really well and looks great,” he commented. The owners of Tongue & Groove are also justifiably proud given the venue won the “best bar” and “best new venue” gongs at Canberra’s AHA Awards night in June.
