“Center Bar does not live in a conventional set of four walls,” says designer Jeffrey Beers of New York-based Jeffrey Beers International. Set in the iconic Time Warner Center, the bar is an oasis surrounded by restaurants and shops. “Our challenge was to create a sense of intimacy and warmth in a heavily trafficked fourth floor atrium,” he adds.
“This coupled with the linear shape of the layout-creates the ilusion that he space is sailing through the atrium” says Beers.
“We chose a color palette that complements Center Bar’s surroundings, yet is unlike any of the other restaurants on the fourth floor,”
“As a hospitality designer, my job is to make people feel safe and secure, even as they are surrounded by a bustling environment,”
“I love the aesthetic of those unexpected bars in Europe that are thoughtfully detailed and personal-intimate places that have tailored details, well-proportioned furniture, and attentive service,” says Beers. “That’s what we wanted to achieve with Center Bar.“
