RED MANERA

SKYBAR Nightclub

Nostalgia and resilience, both engrained in the Lebanese social fabric, were the driving force behind the concept for the renowned SKYBAR nightclub: how to recreate the venue after it caught fire back in 2015, while preserving its identity. From split mirror cladding, fragmented screens, altered lighting installations, to infiltrated greenery, the aim was to convey a distorted perception of the space and its surrounding. As for recuperated raw steel scattered around, they are reminiscent of SKYBAR reemerging from its ashes with a fresh new identity.
