Ai Giudici Bar Palermo
Design: Studio DiDeA
Location: Palermo, Sicily, Italy
Ai Giudici is an intimate, small bar in Palermo.
The client’s request was to create a double space : a daytime cafeteria along with a lounge bar.
The project by DiDeA has provided a dual identity trough two basic materials: light coloured wood for the cafeteria and rust colored iron for the lounge bar.
From the main entrance, you get inside the cafeteria area, where wooden furnitures – tables and chairs, flower boxes, lighting bodies from the ceiling -are conceived as modular elements and inserted onto a metal framing running from walls to ceiling.
Going forward, you meet the lounge bar, where a rust colored iron leering volume wraps the floor, the walls and the ceiling.
The extremely flexible furniture guarantees numbers of settings, as the seats, that can be used as vertical (stools) or orizontal (benches )elements.
The choice of a glass-raised floor has enabled to save and admire the original marble flooring – emphasized by led lights – and easily reach the entrance level.
As architects said about the project : “Our goal was to design a flexible and cozy environment, by creating a warm atmosphere trough materials that evoke a kind of an industrial character “.
