The bar, a much-loved place and symbol of sociability, enters the house, bringing with it emotions that epitomise the Italian lifestyle. Barista is a compact mobile bar with a sculptural volume, characterised by a ribbed effect comprising natural copper rods of differing diameters which create an irregular texture and give life to a soft play of light. The upper surface, also in natural copper, is slightly lower than the perimeter, thus making it useful for resting and serving drinks. The mobile bar opens like a book: the perfect 180° opening action is made possible by the design solution which incorporates a “V” shape, thus enabling the two symmetrical halves to align perfectly. The opening action is helped by two small wheels housed within the base. The interior is made entirely of stainless steel (this material was selected also because it’s hygienic and easy to clean) with a special mirrored finish, which multiplies the kaleidoscope of colours of the beverages and the reflections from the glass bottles and glasses, engendering an elegant atmosphere reminiscent of a club or café. Barista is equipped to hold bottles and glasses of different shapes and sizes.
