Rio 2016 Olympics


Setting the scene on Rio’s famous Copacabana Beach, Inside Out worked with event designers Ruby J to dramatically transform the famed Copacabana Palace Hotel into an elegant and theatrical venue for invited guests of the Summer 2016 Olympic Games.

Transforming two ballroom spaces and a vast terrace, Inside Out worked to Ruby J’s brief, supplying and designing furniture that travelled over five thousand miles to reach their end destination.

Each of the venue’s transformed ballrooms provided a cosy lounge and meeting space for guests where a combination of high quality seating was showcased in a range of luxurious upholsteries.

"Although the original features of the ballroom spaces were beautiful, we wanted to create a more modern and fresh space for guests” - Ruby J Team

Handmade in our London workshop, deep button back sofas in midnight velvet and designer coffee tables complement the existing grand interiors; whilst Italian made Rosalind lounges and Clip side chairs hone in on the brief’s modern countenance.

Taking a step outside, the secluded balcony is furnished with premium outdoor rattan sofas, lounges and dining chairs. All finished in matching white, the display of furniture cleverly offset the coloured integrated lighting that was featured throughout.

From render to reality, the finished project successfully delivers a comfortable and modern venue that is rich in ambiance and perfectly suited to its famed location, Copacabana.
