This bar in Bulgaria, designed by Studio Mode, features walls of 3D eye-catching geometric patterns.
Description from the designers:
The design concept was created in relation to the distinctive shape of the space — irregular hexagon. We set one of the room’s axes as dominant by opening a corner (two window displays) to the terrace, extending the space and giving it a desired proportion and connecting the interior with the exterior. We mastered the disordered hexagon to achieve a regular one and applied a general mathematical correlation between all interior elements. The keys to the task were structural combinatorics and work with the proportions and scale of a geometric shape.
We introduced a combination of natural and warm on one hand and flawless, synthetic, and “cold” materials on the other hand to achieve the balance of needed sensations. We created a strong, distinguished, and conceptual impression that adjusts and masters the space, acquiring design inspiration from nature — the honeycomb through the use of a simple geometric shape (equilateral triangle and the derivative regular hexagon). Furthermore, we differentiated the desired effects by changing scale. In this project, we applied some of the insights from the work of the great architect Antoni Gaudí.
