Aspen Bar

This striking bar is a masterpiece in connected steel and includes upper cabinets, lower cabinets, backsplash, countertop, and panels for refrigeration. Custom-fabricated drawer pulls with exposed spot welding create visual and tactile satisfaction; designed to tuck neatly against the drawer front and pivot outward when pulled, they add sleek, simple lines across the entire face of the bar. The cabinetry had to be light enough yet strong enough to hold barware and other essentials, so I used the principles of unibody car construction to achieve the perfect balance. A combination of materials with warm and cool patinas refine the visual landscape: Hauberk mesh steel cabinet fronts, antique quarter-sawn oak wood grain wine racks, hand-rubbed and polished countertops, and a hot-rolled steel backsplash.
