Bar Marie is a daytime coffeebar situated in the entrance lounge of the Sanoma offices in Mechelen, Belgium. Our mission was to design a bar with its own identity, which has the same purpose as the Sanoma magazines: tell stories, inspire and inform. The result is a lovely bar concept that is a 3d version of a magazine.
For this project we worked with great suppliers such as Textiellab Tilburg, D-tile and Atelier Famous who helped us develop great eyecatchers that contribute to the story of Bar Marie. Also props for the Creneau building crew, who worked overtime to make this design come to life. Can you see the face of Marie...?
