Frame Bar Design Athens by Dimitris Tsigos
An interesting Frame Bar Interior Design created by architects Dimitris Tsigos. Frame Bar is the main bar of the st George lycabettus hotel, located in kolonaki, Athens. The main goal of the Frame Bar Interior Design was to recreate the usual typologies of chairs, benches, bars stands, tables and coffee tables using forms that morph from one geometry to the other, thus denying determined typology – activity associations.
This was achieved by using advanced parametric design techniques which led to the specification of a series of poly – surfaces, ultimately constructed out of thermo – formed staron. The geometrical continuity is retained throughout the design, ultimately offering a continuous interior topography that assumes different geometrical specifications in relation to specific programmatic intentions. The main materials used are heat-formed starron (corrian equivalent) and the Spanish marble known as emperador.
