Bar Epice is a wine bar in a half basement near Roppongi crossing which is located in one of Tokyo’s more affluent area.
In order to design the longest bar counter possible using Bubinga wood in a small triangulated plane area of 26 square meters while also providing a standing counter from concrete on the opposite side, the bar counter is placed diagonally across the space.To emphasize the two counters and to use the small space effectively, the bar stools are cantilevered off the wall under the bar counter.A 4 meter long lighting equipment hung over the counter is made to light up the bar only without creating any shadows.
