In recent years, most bars' successes attribute to their distinct themes or unique interior designs. Today, the bar's interior design tends to individuation and diversification, which is directly related to creation intentions of the designer and the owner. A bar's theme could be anything or any events, even a fleeting idea. Therefore, now a bar's theme tends to be diversified and abstract which runs through every aspect of its interior design. This book will illustrate bar design in four chapters: theme design, layout design, the use of materials and lighting design. Each chapter starts with some must-know design points and then some experienced designers will share their experience with design cases. At last, some featured bar design cases within recent three years will be illustrated. The common features of our selected cases are promoted and highlighted: consideration of details, emphasis on experience and sustainability, understanding of owner's demands and appropriate expression of space.
