unstudio has designed a colorful bar located within the city of lyon, in france. the main goal of the project was to create a modern version of the old typical french bar, that people visit to drink their morning coffee, enjoy their lunch or savour one of the many artisanal beers offered.

passionate about post WWII furniture bargain-hunting, the owner of the bar requested that unstudio approaches the design in this specific style. bearing this idea in mind, the architects, revisited industrial codes and transfigurations of the genre, by observing the works of jean prouvé, le corbusier and mathieu matégot. in this way, the bar features a mixture of colors, shapes and materials that create a bold, fun environment and reference the modern aesthetic.
