The challenge: creating a feeling of intimacy
A feeling of spaciousness combined with privacy. This was the aim behind the design for the bok in Saarbrücken, that is, to integrate these contrasting elements in order to create an homogeneous whole.

Ralf Kürbitz: 'With our design for walls and ceiling we manage to convey long familiar images of foliage, exhuding intimacy and comfort, in a modern way.'
 
The design: islands of pleasure
As soon as guests enter the bok restaurant in the Europa Galerie through its curved portal framed with sheet copper, they are met with a sea of algae leaves.

With a soft curve the wall with its algae prints becomes the ceiling, creating a protective canopy under which guests can eat in a tranquil setting. Delicate hanging lamps in the seating area provide a myriad of lighted accents.

The bar, framed by back-lit strips of real wood, forms a glowing contrast to thiss. A mirror on the rear wall gives added depth to the 57 m² space.

In order to preserve a unified sense of space and yet convey a sense of privacy, individual seating niches are divided from one another by hanging strings of powder-coated steel beads.
