I WAS HEARING COLORS
SAX Jazz Restaurant & Lounge
SAX is a jazz restaurant designed to cater for harmonious physical & visual interactions. The dynamics and movement between the musicians and performers on stage and the various corners of the venue were essential. Thus, different seating areas with a particular function were created: a formal dining area stretches down the entire left wall, while an elongated bar takes over the entire facing wall. In the center, low-seating allows customers to enjoy the stage performance more intently, while high tables further back, integrated within the library racks, caters for side conversations. Finally, “love-bird cages”, surrounded with greenery, offer a more cocooned intimacy & sensual experience, while maintaining an unobstructed view of the entire floor.
