Bar Basque: life imitates art Bar Basque - a recent CBB project, in collaboration with Philip Koether Architects and Syd Mead - is featured in the January-February 2011 issue of Hospitality Design magazine.
The new Bar Basque translates art director Syd Mead’s (Blade Runner) conceptual renderings into a real-life restaurant and bar. CBB, working with Philip Koether Architects, conceived the lighting design solution that is so vital in this transformation
The restaurant’s curved, red walls are translucent, and illuminated to glow from within, softening an intense, red color scheme. LEDs are featured throughout the various rooms: the design uses a range of lighting sources, colors and effects to create depth and shadow and bring dimension to the spaces.
Imaginative lighting, creatively applied and carefully detailed into the complex architecture, turns a futuristic art concept into a fine dining experience for today.
