Presenters and Winners alike cooled their heels backstage at the 89th Academy Awards in the Rolex sponsored Greenroom.   Event Eleven again this year created the elegant private lounge just steps away from the stage at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.  Produced for Rolex, the four day build incorporated the iconic watchmaker’s signature green and gold colors, represented in the elegant furnishings and lush greenery.  The two-tone scheme carried over into the plush velvet seating with brass accents, surrounded by bookshelves lined with Rolex-themed items, and framed posters of legendary Hollywood actors sporting the famed Rolex watches.  A nod to the well-known Rolex watch boxes was interpreted in the centerpiece of the space, a translucent green bar with a fluted bezel inspired Venetian chandelier providing illumination for the stars.
