什么是“Binary”? 据牛津词典释义。Binary：1.using only 0 and 1 as a system of numbers 二进制的（用0和1记数）2.based on only two numbers; consisting of two parts（仅基于两个数字的；二元的；由两部分组成的）。“二元”是一种数制算法，是一种哲学思考，也是一种社会行为选择。
What is “Binary”? According to the definition in Oxford Dictionary, the word “binary” contains two meanings: 1. using only 0 and 1 as a system of numbers; 2. based on only two numbers; consisting of two parts. “Binary” is not only a mathematical algorithm, but also a kind of philosophical thinking and a choice of social behavior.

This project was inspired from, and paid tribute to, the spirit of American Hipples Movement in 1960s and 1970s, which focused on the slogan “Do your own things”. As the name of this bar, Binary expresses a kind of dualism. However, apart from its literal meaning, the owner wants to pay attention to its spiritual expression, which conveys the idea of uniqueness in classical environment and the freedom in tradition definition. Through design details, for example, the usage of reflective metals and mirrors in this space, we can easily read the spirit of counterculture. The light can reach to every corner of tthis space through the refraction of these reflective materials. The wall of wine embraces the whole space, which creates a maverick independent visual atmosphere. Meanwhile, by fully using the height of this space, the owner creates a “space capsule” in the central area, which connects the cocktail bar in the frontcourt and the wine bar in backfield.
This bar is an ideal place not only for salaryman to free their mind, but also for people who wants to think for himself. Exploration and speculation are the eternal themes when drinking and facing yourself in the mirror. The collision of sharp materials and warm lights expresses the attitude of searching the balance in contradictions, which exactly agrees to the understanding of life in young people’s heart.

Bar. BINARY is the unity of opposites that contains gender inclusive; it is the cognition of contradiction and harmony; it is the spark of colliding and the sea that consists of streams. It could be an independent space for only one person, and also could be a platform for different ideas. In this bar, you could not only find infinite possibilities brought by the wine glass and tableware, but also see your sole self in the mirror. While seeking yourself in front of the mirror, your consciousness may already connect with others’ like grafting grape vines.
