An inspiring dessert bar in Bangkok, Thailand, designed by Party/Space/Design, caught our eye! From the combination of materials and colors to the sculptural forms and graphic elements, the impressive space seems to be designed to the last detail.
The concept is derived directly from the base of the menu; sugar. The interior represents the various molecules and crystals that compose the desserts’ primary ingredient. The staircase, surrounded by transparent cubical elements, is a reference to the sugar’s crystal, which when translated in architectural expressions create an impressive installation.
But, let’s talk about the marble applications in SHUGAA.
The chosen marble, works perfectly with the combination of materials and the color palette applied. The stone’s characteristics, along with its application, tone down its imposing nature and doesn’t “steal the thunder” from the harmonic interior. However, the polygonic cladding of the vertical surface of the bar, adds a unique movement and texture to the elegant space.
Through the example with SHUGAA you can see that marble doesn’t always have to be the protagonist in a project. It can be inserted in the design in a more discreet way without losing its glamour. On the contrary, it succeeds to transplant its elegant nature in all the other materials of the project.
