Drink Me Bar
UBM
Interiors
 
Conran and Partners were the chosen designers for The Sleep Event’s widely anticipated pop-up drinks bar; the social
hub of Europe’s leading exhibition and conference for the global hotel design industry.

The Drink Me Bar explored the ‘Wonder Tales’ theme uniting different elements of the event, drawing on inspiration from the more surreal aspects of Alice in Wonderland as well as other, darker, tales from the German childhood of director Tina Norden.
 
Designed by Conran and Partners and produced by Turkish manufacturer Parla Design, the furniture is playful and in keeping with the wondertales theme. Rounded, grey fabric ‘pebbles’ create informal seating in the bar area, whilst wing backed chairs give a sense of privacy.

Miniature scale of urban tales were subtly curated within glass top tables to encourage conversation between visitors of the bar. An ‘open book’ carpet, manufactured by Edge Carpets is a modern mash-up of words written by Conran and partners evoke the story of Alice in an urban context.
