New York, NY
The pulsing blue interiors practically spill out onto the street through large illuminated windows inset with continual bubbles. Intoxication is immediate upon entering the azure, a watery world of swirling banquettes, suede upholstery, and intimate lighting. Original brick walls were left in place for contrast of materials and a down to earth feeling. Sensual red is introduced in the casual sofa area and in the basket weave wall and ceiling structure. The hand polished, stainless steel bar is faced in luminous iridescent blue recycled mosaic tile and meanders around, creating pockets for intimate conversation.
