This ingenious configuration was produced primarily based on the need to have to include much more functionality to a little space. Every little thing has been simplified but with a touch of attractiveness added to design and style a perfect recipe of: a single element get together animal, a single part display and completed with a dollop of dinner for two.
In a modest area, clear use of area is critical to steer clear of the two ‘c’s: clutter and claustrophobia. This collaboratively developed structure is soothing to the soul. The group of Michael Chen, Justin Snider, Brady Caldwell and Alan Tansey invented the aptly named PartyWall for a diminutive Chelsea apartment in New York City.
Gone are the days of beer kegs in dark and dank basements, the PartyWall has a fully integrated bar with refrigeration and tap. White, lacquered panels slide to transform into their evening alter-ego personality rich walnut burl finished cabinetry. LED lighting adds light and shadow and defines the abstractness of this piece.
Not to ignore the need to have for dining soon after a handful of cocktails, this staff of 4 incorporated a 5-foot, pullout component that generates seating for two with cubes that also can be utilized to accommodate added visitors at a cocktail get together.
Right after dinner, guests can feast on cigars that are neatly hidden in a climate-managed humidor. Visually spectacular and exceptionally functional, the PartyWall is here to remain.
