The client’s emotional preference and rich experiences as a bartender convince the designer to create a novel project, in which the place is converted from an innovative cocktail workshop to a cozy and styled bar according to time shift in a day.

The Tasting Room 酒吧被设计隐藏在工作室的后面，可通过黑色通道和机舱门进入。以竹、石和木地板为原料的简洁设计强调和呼应了鸡尾酒制作中采用优质有机成分制成的精神追求，这也有助于丰富客户在此空间中的内在精神体验、提高品尝满意度。在这个工作坊+酒吧中，每杯饮料都有自己的“身份证明”，用以标明调酒师的配方和研发笔记。

The warm light setting and the solid wood texture are well matched in harmony. Bamboo weaving, a local art format in Chengdu, is delicately set with the chairs back, wall decoration and light box. More surprisingly, bamboo weavings scatter the light on the floor and walls, that building up a magic lighting atmosphere within the space.
