Eva and Felix Skofitsch know a thing or two about what’s trending when it comes to interior design for bars, bistros and restaurants. And they somehow manage to masterfully combine the atmosphere of, say, a bar in Paris with elements from the local area. With one foot in Schliersee and the other out in the big wide world – these are the kind of stories the setting weaves.
Freedom and functionality, fantasy and fun – the demands placed on the interior design of hotels and other gastronomic venues are many and varied. A challenge that makes our design team at home INTERIOR light up. Glimpses into a bar with a bistro, episode 6.
You can’t get much further than this from the hunting lodge look: Anyone entering the M1 bar in the Bavarian town of Schliersee finds themselves instantly in a different world.
This was a special project for us: designing a bar from top to bottom and in a style unlike any other in the Alpine region. Of course, we accompanied this projects with photos and videos. Now the bar is open for business.
We are considered specialists in bringing an individual feel to the staging of a space. An aspiration that takes on new meaning in the M1 bar. Where colours shine, fabrics shimmer and patterns merrily collide.
It’s hard to tear the gaze away: every single arrangement is carefully put together, harmoniously designed and demonstrates the exceptional finesse and know-how of the designers at Geisler & Trimmel, who are in charge of the concept and plan.
Eva and Felix Skofitsch are brave enough to invite an extravagant guest into their bar. After all, bravery is what you need when you replace the traditional stags with tigers in the middle of Bavaria. Now they gaze right into our eyes, adorning perfectly upholstered bar stools, cushions and curtains.
Velour is the material of choice for a bar that aims to appeal to all the senses. It comes in many varieties: velvety and printed, with a long pile, shimmering and with a honeycomb pattern or broad stripes and even in a vintage look.
This fabric lends depth and vivacity and in the colours of the M1 bar, it exudes a sophisticated sensuality. It also fits the history of the establishment: motivated by love, this was built over 200 years ago by King Max I. as his summer residence.
When we chatted to them shortly before the inauguration of the M1 bar, Eva and Felix Skofitsch were overjoyed about the collaboration with us: “We couldn’t possibly have imagined anything better than upgrading our bistro and bar with you. As soon as we stepped foot in your office, we knew you were the right ones.”
We’d like to express our gratitude and return the compliment!
