Sicis Creates Contemporary Lounge for Salone de Mobile 2019
Designed by the architect, Marco Lucchi, the “Lounge Bar” at Salone de Mobile 2019 highlighted the ability of Sicis products to mold and adapt in infinite two-dimensional and three-dimensional combinations, allowing the development of high-impact entertainment spaces.
The aim is “to create a ‘wow effect’ in the user, and a work has failed if it doesn’t satisfy this dogma,” said Lucchi. Following this principle, by combining mosaic, Vetrite, steel and fabrics, an ambience that places transversally on the market and adapts to any area with these necessities -- bars, restaurants and hotels -- was created.
The bar counter can be tailored depending on its use: from the shelves to the cocktail station, coffee or champagne station, refrigerators, sinks, ice machines and so on.
It is proposed with a height of 95 cm, lower than classic bar counters, to create a special atmosphere. To emphasize this aspect and create a greater closeness between the bartender and the customer, it can be associated with accessories such as the countertop coffee machine.
The counter structure is in plywood with a steel cladding, while the front can be covered in mosaic, following exclusive patterns, with tesserae in different shapes and materials, from glass paste to steel.
The handrail placed along the structure is made of steel and has a LED system on the inner side to illuminate the counter’s decor, the dominant element of the space. Even the shelves, placed in the wall behind the counter, are equipped with a central LED system, set as to enlighten the bottles vertically.
Lucchi proposes a lounge realized with panels in backlit Gem Glass Vetrite, both on the walls and ceiling, which give a seducing and special aura to the whole room.
