The champagne counter for RUINART is located in the Elbphilharmonie. Were there any restrictions in this building? The Elbphilharmonie has been designed down to the last centimetre and there is no space for another bar, so the counter had to be mobile and on castors. We were required to use non-combustible materials and not decorate it with a logo. So our counter doesn’t actually have a logo, but it does have the discreet shadow of a logo. An aspect that only makes it even more charming.
Mobile, removable and yet extremely stable. How did HAUS F solve this? There is a lot of expertise in this small counter: the basis is an aluminium tube construction covered with a skin of Corian artificial stone that we have thermally moulded using a vacuum press. The individual modules are joined together in a stable but invisible manner using mechanical magnets.
