Blast Taipei (Bar) by Aly Chin
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
The instant that a ping pong ball falls into a cup is the most anticipated moment of a Beer Pong game. The ripples that from inside the cup serve as the inspiration for this design. Areas that are closer to the center are focal points of activities. This design concept improves people’s sense of participation, and creates a space with an active, group-oriented, and lively bar atmosphere.
The process of the beer pong game inspires a dynamic, active design concept. By abstracting the processes of this game, the formation of the space becomes a performance in itself. Using traditional design elements and modern styling, this design creates a spatial experience with a mobile, an ordered, and a continuous integrated concept.
Design Challenges
The challenge was to raise people’s sense of participation to the games, and creates a space with an active and group-oriented atmosphere. The other challenge was the low height of the existing beams. All the electrical, mechanical and HVAC system have been studied with contractor to be minimized.
Production Technology
Arc-shaped lights lead the rhythm of the game, surrounding people with an exciting atmosphere; at the same time, the styling of arcs and lines of movement maintains a sense of unrestrained freedom, making people feel as though they are in an adult paradise. In the rear of the space, behind the DJ platform, a smooth cement pillar resembles a trophy with a modern linear design. Similar to a ping pong ball falling into a cup, it also serves as a symbol of victory. The crystal ball chandeliers in the nightscape viewing area elicit the image of splashing water after a ping pong ball falls into a cup. The image of water falling to the ground, elicited by the chandeliers, is completed using round lights on the floor that flash in sync with music.
