The design of a bar plays the most crucial role in defining its identity and atmosphere – apart from the quality of the drinks. The illustrated volume Drink! Best of Bar Design presents 40 contemporary projects from New York via Berlin to Shanghai, from innovative young designers as well as established architects. Outlandish and colorful interiors or minimalist and reduced concepts, all the projects show a huge diversity in terms of how the space is organized, which materials are used and what individual style is developed. On all pages it is visible that bar design has considerably widened its scope of creativity over the past years, making it an exciting field of architecture and design.
