THE BACARDI BAR
Bacardi commissioned the construction of a bar in a specific place at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. The location within the Ziggo Dome was a rather difficult one. At the back side of the bar to be, were the rolling stairs and furthermore, near the bar was located a service/ emergency elevator.
The design process started with the design of a rather big bar with a big multimedia screen and metal trusts creating a big frame. During the second phase of the design, the bar became significantly smaller in size and more humble in it’s appearance, due to a smaller actual budget. The third and final phase of the design was the one to be realized at the end, with it's distinctive 45 degree angles.
The black colour is once more predominant with lines of red lighting. Instead of the black metal frame suggested in the design, the front walls of the bar were constructed as a plain black surface. The black Bacardi column was created to define well the bar's space and the space below the staircase was transformed into the back bar.
The bar station configuration for two bartenders, being extremely ergonomic, is designed to the detail and has all the necessary spaces and conveniences to support even the most demanding cocktail bar.
The finish touch and the realisation of the project was done in collaboration with Do it Fluid.
