Blast Taipei Bar by Howard Yu and William Sun - Studio In2

Home > Winners > #64886


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Blast Taipei

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bar

INSPIRATION:
The instant that a ping pong ball falls into a cup is the most anticipated moment of a Beer Pong game. The ripples that from inside the cup serve as the inspiration for this design. Areas that are closer to the center are focal points of activities. This design concept improves people’s sense of participation, and creates a space with an active, group-oriented, and lively bar atmosphere.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The process of the beer pong game inspires a dynamic, active design concept. By abstracting the processes of this game, the formation of the space becomes a performance in itself. Using traditional design elements and modern styling, this design creates a spatial experience with a mobile, an ordered, and a continuous integrated concept.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Ring-shaped lines of motion and the tiered floor design allow people to enter and leave freely the game, observe, sit on chairs to cheer on players, or to participate in the game from a central space. The primary design objective for this project is different from that of previous bars, wherein the bar was viewed as the core of the overall space. Here, the focal point of the overall space is the game area. The DJ platform is placed on the central axis of the space, from which the DJ can observe and care for the entire audience. The platform is placed at a height from which the DJ can participate, integrate, and revel with the audience.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in February 2017 and finished in August 2017 in Taipei City, Taiwan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
After bouncing and entering the cup, the ping pong ball splashes and, finally, settles. By abstracting the processes of this game, the formation of the space becomes a performance in itself. Arc-shaped lights lead the rhythm of the game, surrounding people with an exciting atmosphere; at the same time, the styling of arcs and lines of movement maintains a sense of unrestrained freedom, making people feel as though they are in an adult paradise. In the rear of the space, behind the DJ platform, a smooth cement pillar resembles a trophy with a modern linear design. Similar to a ping pong ball falling into a cup, it also serves as a symbol of victory. The crystal ball chandeliers in the nightscape viewing area elicit the image of splashing water after a ping pong ball falls into a cup. The image of water falling to the ground, elicited by the chandeliers, is completed using round lights on the floor that flash in sync with music.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
370㎡

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The client was trying to bring the beer pong bar culture from Hong Kong to Taipei, so the design team went to Hong Kong for the observation and research. People enter the game by team and play with strangers, bringing together and rival feelings all into a bar, which is very exciting. And the players could be friends after the game. We was trying to build the similar vibe and create original design for Blast Taipei. The instant that a ping pong ball falls into a cup is the most anticipated moment of a Beer Pong game. The ripples that from inside the cup serve as the inspiration for this design.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to raise people’s sense of participation to the games, and creates a space with an active and group-oriented atmosphere. The other challenge was the low height of the existing beams. All the electrical, mechanical and HVAC system have been studied with contractor to be minimized.
