Eco Bar Fresh & Go designed by Yaroslav Galant is the first of its kind in Kiev, Ukraine. Offering clients fresh juices and cocktails, the eco-bar is an idea that is likely to take off globally. According to the press release we received, the concept for its exterior design was inspired by natural occurrences and elements such as crystal-clear ice, mountains, fresh greenery. “White color and allusions to Japan origami culture lead us to one of the key Zen philosophy point – the awareness of each moment of living” – said Yaroslav Galant about the his work.
The bar was made from high-technology material Corian® by DuPont and all of the engineering facility components were made of stainless steel. We don’t know about you guys, or about your opinion regarding the actual design of the bar, but all those fresh fruit and the sweet mixtures they could provide made us…thirsty. We certainly like the idea of fresh drinks and we hope to see this type of bar around the corner asap. How do you find it?
Speaking of “less is more” design, if your shelf offers little display space, consider opting for one or two standout items to showcase rather than a slew of small finds. In the next image, we see the Magical Thinking Peaks Shelf, crafted from glass and aluminum. Then again, there’s something charming about a curiously cluttered look, especially if items are thoughtfully curated. The Magical Thinking Pyramid Shelf below holds treasures and curiosities. When your shelves make a sculptural statement, don’t overwhelm and block them with clutter. After all, when the design is as fabulous as the Bamboo Step Wall Shelf in the next featured image, you certainly don’t want to cover up the bold form of your shelving.
Vega Architecture’s design for the Busch Home in Lakewood, CO is a wonderful example of how a sunken living room can still maintain a sleek, modern look. By keeping the depth of the pit fairly shallow and using furniture with clean, wooden lines, the space still feels light and airy. A pop of warm, lighter colored carpeting also creates a nice texture change when paired with the harder but more durable tile used on the higher level. When Amber Flooring installed their engineered prefinished square edge Stilnovo-Afrormosia planks throughout the Los Gatos home, they didn’t forget the living area’s conversation pit. Now the space is lined with the warm material, making it the perfect spot to curl up around the fireplace.
