“If given the truth, [the people] can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts — and beer” – Abraham Lincoln
The interior design concept for a new Moscow City location of the well-known Lambic created by ANZA was based on two eternal values of this uncertain world – good design and good beer.
The new Lambic restaurant in the “Tower Na Naberezhnoy” is like a breath of fresh air among the stone jungle of Moscow City skyscrapers. The combination of minimalistic concrete surfaces, where the edges between walls, floor and ceiling disappear and soft daylight, shining through panoramic glazing, create an atmosphere of solidity and calm – perfect for business crowd. The coziness of a Belgian brasserie is conveyed with the help of comfy leather seating and tiger wood surfaces that reflect amber light, evoking in one’s memory the color of the restaurant’s main drink.
Crystal chandeliers and a forty-year-old palm tree – art objects on a neutral concrete background, add a touch of languid luxury. Mirrored surfaces made of bent polished steel visually distort the space, enhancing the interior with new layers and meanings. Travertine panels on the walls – contemporary art pieces built on the abstract compositions of lines, symbolize the intersection of people, paths and choices. An abstract map of life and its complex unpredictability – an integral part of the Moscow City character.
