The idea for this Award-winning project for the 2014 Interior Biennale in Kortrijk derives from the consideration that space is a scarce good on most fairs. Booths are crammed side to side and constantly screaming for the public’s attention.
In the same way a city park can be an escape from busy traffic, Behind the Curtain offers a pause from the noise and visual overload of the fair. Arranged along the solid base of two marble bars it offers intimate seats comfortably embraced by a silky curtain. Therefore, aside from the food and drinks it provides, this bar’s biggest asset might be the hiding space it generates.
