Custom Made Bar by Shadow Design

October 20th, 2015 by Steven Shadowitz

The custom bar was made of rich exotic woods with high gloss laquer finish in the style of Art Deco*. Marquetry was used, this is the craft of applying pieces of veneer to form decorative and linear designs – most often very geometric.

The metal and accents (such as the bar handles) were used to give a futuristic machine aesthetic. The bar was designed to be both functional and glamorous.

*Art Deco is a visual arts style that first emerged in France after WWI (prominent from 1920s-1940s) heavily influenced by Cubism, Art Nouveau and early Hollywood. Quickly spread to the United States and then internationally.
