Ukrainian architects Sergey Makhno and Vasiliy Butenko covered the interior of this bar in Kiev with sticks.
Called Twister, the project also features a double-height restaurant, with curving booths on stilts above the regular dining furniture below.
Drop-shaped lamps are intended to represent rain.
The information below is from the architects:
Design team of Serghii Makhno and Vasiliy Butenko have completed the interior for a restaurant in Kiev, where you can feel like baby bird while drinking cocktail or have a dinner at tornado top. This restaurant can be classed as modern European and offers a molecular kitchen style dishes.
The main aim while designing this restaurant space was to create an environment that is natural, modern and comfortable.This restaurant features two areas: a two-storeyed dining section and relaxing bar area.
Two-storeyed dining section was inspired by two natural phenomenas: tornado and rain. The space features six tornado shape balconies which create one dynamical upper zone with five dining cells. Restaurant walls lined with wooden slats create contrast balconies smooth surface.
Ceiling lamps imitate rain drops falling from the sky so complete atmosphere is very natural and ensures comfort. Spaces of the restaurant are calming due to the natural tones which extend throughout the restaurant: beige, ochre, garnet, brown.
The bar itself is made of wooden sticks stuck together among themselves. This wall decoration creates feeling of bird’s nest where you can feel warm and cosy. Armchair design remind us coniferous cones and forest. The whole place is made for relax and changing people’s mind to meditative spirit.
