PJB Bar is a Bar that is dedicated to one musician. It is based on an authentic taste, yet by maximizing the modern technology, we were conscious of deriving the potentials of each material. Our goal was to express progressiveness of this musician who has fostered massive fundamental skills for over years and still endeared to people around the world. Steel and stones are used for materials to express highly sophisticated method such as utilizing horizontals and verticals consciously and providing fine carvings. We ensured high quality wood, leather and fabric, frequently utilized them where customers could actually reach. Randomly placed mirror shelf boards all have the effective techniques to maximize the small space. Chandeliers that seem to float in air and shelf boards will increase extraordinary atmosphere. We were able to create with similar tense feeling of silence and anticipation intertwining, just before this musician is about to hit the notes.
