Atop The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, overlooking the Kremlin and Red Square in Moscow, is the O2 Bar. Has been executed to service a sophisticated clientele, this new South- American fusion cocktail bar, is being executed as a complete solution – from concept and branding through to Interior design and execution.
The bar is centered to a central void that penetrates the entire hotel. In this void is the pièce de résistance, a lighting installation of thousands of suspended lights that undulate through the void to create a ‘sea of light’. Delivering warmth and light this sculptural piece also helps to tie the entire bar underneath the glass-domed structure.
The 17 meter Cocktail and Sashimi bar at the end of this installation, is not only multifunctional in its design, but incorporates the use of large ice displays, old Peruvian antiques along with luminous back-lit wild Blue Agate and polished brass trimmings, visible from everywhere in the bar. Both the rooftop terrace and the bar are appointed with carefully designed and selected furnishings in warm, luxurious materials to help bring in the residential style in this commercial environment.
