The Charming Night
In July 0f 2009 received a book as a birthday gift from one of my best friends. The book was entitled “Contemporary Restaurants and Bars” by Martin M. Pegler (ISBN 1-58471-046-2) and featured restaurant interior design from across the globe. The inscription on the front cover read:
“If there were a book of Club Designs from around the world, I woulda gotten you that, but this is the next best thing!”
And then something rather ironic happened – or was it fate?
I was contacted by a publisher from Hong Kong about a project I had posted on the web site behance.com which is a platform for designers of many disciplines to showcase their work. He was interested in our project Bijou and asked me if he could include it in a publication he was working on. In May 2013, we were honoured to have our work appear in the The Charming Night, which is large coffee-table compendium featuring the interior design of fifty-two high-end clubs, bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues from around the world! Our work on the Bijou Lounge was featured in a glossy four-page spread.
From the publisher’s website:
When the evenfall descends and the colorful light flecks, it is just the beginning for people who advocate the fashionable nightlife. Nightclub, as a place for relaxation and emotions let-off, its design has to be special and unique to attract customers. The various nightclub designs in this book will bring us a marvelous visual design feast, and what the book displays is the designer’s perfect control over the detail design and decoration.
