A new bar called D´espresso Bar has been opened recently at Madison Avenue, New York city. It was designed by the architectonic studio Nemaworkshop. Architects have literally turned the bar on its side using impressive wall-papers. The initial idea of the client was to build a unique and creative space that links to the style of the near-by Grand Central Station. As for the inspiration, a next-door Bryan Park library was used, what it is evident at first sight. Entering the bar, one takes notice that the room was turned on its side right away.
This illusion is created using wall-papers not only on the walls, but as well on the ceiling and floor. The idea of turning everything on its side accentuates the concept of the bar that sells coffee to “take away”, as we take away a book from a library. Diffusing glass used on the counter contrasts with the book motive on the wall-papers and lights up the space. Furniture is very simple, though stylish and sophisticated. Whole interior is innovative and original, but cosy and relaxing at the same time.
