for their latest project wooton designers has created ‘inns whiskey bar‘, located in chengdu, china. inspired by the distillation process of the amber-colored liquor, the interior makes reference to the copper stills by wrapping patrons in swathes of warm, golden finishes.

upon entering from the street, a discreet oval-shaped door greets visitors and gives just a hint of the golden interior that lies inside. once inside, the concept by wooton designers can be fully appreciated. designed to evoke the image of a pot still, the space is created from smooth, organic shapes, which resemble the rounded still bottoms. these forms are also adorned in copper finishes, much like the traditional whisky stills.

in addition to the copper-colored walls and ceilings, the interior of inns whiskey bar is composed of leather and volcanic stone, which together create a warm and inviting space. the linear geometry of the bar itself provides a welcome contrast from the organic forms of the interior. this element also provides the perfect display for all the varieties of whisky on offer.

a large art installation is also included in the design. suspended from the ceiling in both the bar and main seating area, the ‘ice sphere’ hangs in the volume and intends to complement the amber interiors. overall, with its rich material palette and swathes of warm copper, the bar perfectly reflects the history and process of the ‘water of life’, otherwise known as whisky.
