CAFÉ TRIPOLI | 2007

Deconstructed view reflection.

The design of this Self Service bar was based on the space’s spectacular view towards the plains of Tripoli, where based on greek mythology, goddess of hunting, Artemis , used to hunt with her favorite deers.

Behind the bar, a deconstructed reflection of the view is created, with a composition of extra large cabinets, in various sizes and shades of green, suspended from a black canvas-wall.

Imprinted on the facades of the cabinets, are the mountain ridges seen far away, framing the view, by differentiating the color’s texture. Extra shinny texture is chosen for the sky and mat texture for the mountains.

The bar–top is lined with composite Zebrano wood, referring to the element of earth, soil and cobs in the fields.

The whole composition in arrayed in a line, giving you the feeling of participating in a 3D “panorama” snapshot.
