The bar „Bond IQOS“ is situated in the quarters of the „Bond“ bar. This fancy place is a venue for a small circle of visitors who would use the „IQOS“ products. The interior outfitting is based on the tradition of speakeasy bars, in spite of its contemporary design. In laying out the space, it was sought to disguise attic elements, i.e., sloping ceilings and skylights. This was achieved by means of new curved envelopes. The curved lines were later used in furniture design, too. The bar owner made provision only for VIP guests, therefore, the interior was to lay emphasis on this unique feature. Finishing and furnishing involved valuable and durable materials: veneer wood plank walls, gold-coloured furniture and lamps, natural marble, brownish micro-cement flooring of stone pattern, and upholstered dark-blue velour furniture. These attributes create an illusion of modest and laconic luxury. Furthermore, the bar interior is decorated with a suspended artificial plant composition illuminated by the LED lights. Along with other space elements, it givs an incredible impression to make visitors of the bar feel even more special.
