Kärntner Bar goes Fraunhofer goes Ottobar
Inspired by Adolf Loos’ bar of the bars, the American Bar, located in the first district of Vienna, super + uns developed a moveable bar for an exhibition at the Galerie Handwerk in Munich.
Reduced to its two main functions of intimacy – lost man to barkeeper and rendez-vous in candlelight – the bar measures 1,20m x 3,60m with a hight of 3,00 metres.
You enter the gallery and the bar from the Ottostraße through an order of four columns, outshined by the Otto-lightbox. Inside you are expected by the unexpected mirror-and-space effect.
The lightbox including the mirror-space is an installation in itself.
The bar creates an arc, leading the visitor to the changing event behind.
