Zip it! |competition for the interior of 'mon ami' bar | vienna

with Bika Rebek | First Prize | 2009




Mon Ami is a bar and a fashion boutique in Vienna. The space is often used for fashion shows and parties; therefore they wanted a new design, which adopts itself to different needs.We proposed a new and flexible concept: a collapsible seating landscape that can be quickly and easily stowed away and transformed into a leaning wall. The hinge-mounted seats completely merge with the wall once they are attached to it through Zips. The light intensity also depends on the position of the zips. (Closed –glimmering, unzipped-direct) The seats are connected through a signage network on the floor, that  defines a catwalk for fashion shows. With the ZIP we use elements from fashion to highlight Mon Ami’s special connection to it.
