Bar Basquiat is named after one of the most celebrated American artists of the 20th century, poet and painter, Jean-Michel Basquiat. The bar is located in a multicultural neighbourhood packed with small shops and markets. The urban characteristics of the area together with Basquiat’s work, the distinct quality which the space offers and the former function of the space, create the foundations for the design of the new bar. A diverse use of material can be seen throughout the space. Overlapping volumes and materials refer to Basquiat’s artistic style, his collages and paintings, while colours and finishes refer to the former supermarket layout. The bar has a very strong graphic identity, which is based on a thorough study of Basquiat’s art and poems. Bold material finishes, a strong graphic identity and a distinctive interior layout are the main ingredients to creating a bar with exceptional ambiance.
