Entourage Lounge

Creating the relaxed atmosphere of a bar by bringing together elements of art, humor and fantasy

Leisure
The accommodation of this 200 sqm-place into an art-gallery-lounge gives us the opportunity to explore different ways of displaying art inside a place which is traditionally conceived as a chill-out space. The gallery is organized as three-concatenated spaces: the “Light Fall Room”, the “Mirror Room” and the “Dada Room”.

The white walls of the Light Fall Room display a so-called “untouched nature”: the only piece of art which cannot be purchased.

The Light Fall Room and the Mirror Room are connected with a steel structure which performs as an art sculpture. Once the visitor -consumer- enters the Mirror Room, s/he finds a spectrum of lights and reflections due to the incorporation of an orchestrate disposition of mirrors and paintings embedded into the walls. In the Dada Room, the furniture is conceived as timeless art made of raw materials. Moreover, the walls are refined with matte colors and steel elements. Ambient light tubes and spot lights in the Mirror Room and the Dada Room contrast with the light fall in the first one.

As a result, this space is conceived as journey a trough unique atmosphere which makes the space works together with the displayed art in terms of fantasy, sense of abstraction and humor.

Entourage画廊酒吧

融合虚幻、幽默与艺术元素,打造酒吧惬意氛围

这个200平米室内面积的艺术画廊酒吧给予来访者探索、体验、享受不同种艺术陈列方式的机会,也是一处休闲、放松的场所。整个画廊由三个空间串联而成, 分别为“吊灯间”,“镜画间” 和“达达间”。

“吊灯间”纯白色的墙面所展示的正是那最无价的“ 原始自然”。连接“吊灯间”与“镜画间”的是一座钢结构艺术雕塑。

进入“镜画间”的人们(消费者)都会立刻被墙面四周那错落有致、相互辉映的别样效果所深深吸引。“达达”间内置的家具均由原生态材料量身订制,它也是永恒艺术的象征。不仅如此,室内墙面的设计即低调唯美,又具有使用功能,分别由二维和三维的亚光金属件组成。“镜画间”和“达达间”内置的荧光灯和置顶射灯与“吊灯间”的光效达到了鲜明的反差效果。
这个室内设计最后呈现给人们的是一场别致的空间畅游体验,三个不同室内设计风格幽默、抽象、梦幻般地和谐融为一体。
