The Bar Stock Exchange by The Orange Lane:
The idea was to create a green industrial haven with bursts of colour in the midst of a busy corporate backdrop. Keeping in mind the vibe of the brand TBSE, the design is kept youthful and edgy.
The inspiration of the design was a “greenhouse”. The structure was thus industrially designed internally. The roof of the space was designed with a grid pattern of steel and glass making way for as much natural light as possible.
The space witnesses many containers of planters enhancing the feel of a greenhouse. The inspiration for the design was about proudly displaying the building materials that many try to conceal. Designers at The Orange Lane added a raw and unfinished look to the space.
They selected pieces that are as much about function as style, industrial design was showcased with the use of neutral tones, concrete tunnels, kavlu walls, exposed concrete walls, utilitarian objects, open ceiling showing the AC ducts and pipes, wood and metal surfaces and organic paintings.
The result: a “warehouse look” that combines a true industrial feel with a range of other styles, from the earthy to the polished. The space is enormously huge with parts of the space having a mezzanine floor.
The blue and white herring bone pattern cement tiles tie the space together along with yellow pockets of bright upholstery. The cement fabricated tunnel seating is the crowning glory adding to the adventurous and edgy feel to the space.
