“BADALONA” bar design, 2012

My favourite interior design project. Jens Schumann asked me in 2012 to create an interior and logo for his new bar concept “Badalona”, inspired by the Katalan traditional Champagnerias. The location in Bochum Jens chose for this project, the location Jens chose in Bochum, had been the city’s first Chinese restaurant since 1962. After removing all the layers of old furnishing, we found a nice 1950s architecture space, which I tried to emphazise with my draft. The front of the massive oak bar is handmade out of cnc-cut maple veneer pieces in three coulour shades. Cordula Kafka contributed the bar lights. The vintage chandelies we found in the Netherlands. The great carpenter work was done by Nicolaus Wallner, Spreekulissen.
