The cocktail bar is a low intimate space made of warm and colourful materials such as brass, wood, marble and leather. The pattern of the tiled floor in the front bar has got its inspiration from the Helsinki sea chart.
The custom made giant walk-in wine cabinet separates the cocktail bar from the dining hall. The large windows make the dining hall part of the street life with exiting views to and from the restaurant. The cabinet space can be divided into four smaller rooms or it can be used as an extension of the dining hall.
In addition to the spatial design Futudesign has also designed most of the furniture but for the 250 seating it chose the Malmö collection of the Italian manufacturer Pedrali designed by Michele Cazzaniga, Simone Mandelli and Antonio Pagliarulo. The collection is born from an imaginary journey along the sides of a Scandinavian lake.
Thanks to a skilful wooden manufacturing and the possibility to customize the ash shell with a wide range of upholstering, Malmö conveys a sensation of comfort, warm welcoming and familiarity to the surrounding environments.
