The interior design of the Vivat Wine Bar was inspired by themes from the world of wine and the wine industry. By utilizing contrasts between warm and cold materials of diverse textures, a relaxing ambience of the bar was achieved. Large segments of the walls are lined with Portuguese cognac-colored cork boards, creating a cozy and soft space, while the other walls are processed with hand-brushed natural cement. A classic bar detail, a brass profile, accentuates the seams between these materials, creating lively accents in the space. The furniture and lighting were designed custom for the bar - the pendant lights above the tables are made from black 3-liter wine bottles, usually used to archive wines, and the pendant lights above the bar are made from repurposed hand crafted traditional Istrian wine jugs.
