The Revival Bar at the Workspace Design Show
Revival will be a place to inspire, restore and recharge the show visitors throughout the day. Our design reduces waste by repurposing discarded materials. The goal is to give these items a new lease of life, sparking curiosity and conversation.
Holly Loft, Senior Designer at M Moser Associates comments: “Designing the bar for the Workplace Design Show has been a rewarding experience. The bar will be a key space activated throughout the day by interaction and conversation. The two areas (bar and lounge) centre around two key concepts of flux and stasis – movement vs stationary and action vs conversation. The aim was to provide a place of repose that is immersive, tactile, dynamic and environmentally considered through the reuse of materials. We want to leave people feeling inspired, curious and restored. As creators and designers, we are responsible for a large portion of the built environment. Our work needs to be a catalyst for conversation and evidence of change.”
Bar design partners
To bring our vision to life, we collaborated with some of our partners, including:
Edward Williams is building the statement bar using leftover materials from other projects. The design team visited its workshop to determine which materials best suited the theme. The bar front also features spare fabric tubes from Camira.
Silent Gliss will provide a fabric made from pre-consumer waste, to create partioning throughout the space.
Flokk will be loaning us the furniture for the lounge side. Each piece is crafted sustainably and has its own unique identity and story.
Bolon will be loaning sustainably crafted rugs for the lounge area.
Current Affairs (CA) is supplying the lighting, which includes a feature light above the bar. CA will repurpose the lights for future client projects.
Finally, Planteria will provide planting to decorate the space and repurpose it for future projects.
The bar design reinforces our climate mission to build to net zero. By working with our partners and peers to design and build responsibly and to help reduce waste.
