Winner: Sustainable interior of the year 2023. RooMoo has brought the Lai Zhou Bar concept to life in Shanghai, China.
The overall space planning of Lai Zhou Bar comprises a whisky-tasting area, VIP room, bar area, kitchen, bathroom and outdoor seating area.
"Regarding the whole bar, it is necessary to consider the actual consumer needs and show the brand spirit that can echo the Lai Zhou Distillery," said Roomoo.
At present, as China's most extensive whisky distillery, it has become the first company group in China to practice the green concept of net zero emissions and take carbon neutrality as its long-term goal.
Judges comments: "This whisky bar made from used whisky barrels sets a striking precedent for how companies can repurpose their own waste materials into something beautiful and meaningful. By allowing more components to be added over time as barrels fall out of use, the interior highlights the continuous need to keep closing the loop."
