The Alchemy Bar, 2006

The conception, design and realisation of a 24m long, kinetic bar counter, commissioned
by the Robodock Festival, Amsterdam in 2006.
Based on the four elements theory, the counter is divided into four self-standing bars
with the themes water, earth, fire and air. The bar had to be constructed from recycled
material and is designed to be collapsible.

Rent the Alchemy Bar!
The kinetic counter is now available to rent.
