83bands which is located at No.38, Donghu Street, Shang Hai is a bar the specializes in cocktail and champagne. When it is approaching the sunset, the neon lights gradually reflect on the entire Donghu street. In the street that is filled with a great variety of catering and entertainment, the high-rise narrow cement doorof 83bands is extremely understated. Late at night, the pavement is lightened by red-orange colored light that is similar to sunset. The light is penetrating through semi-arch door gate. This fascinating color sends us a message that passer- by who just step out of the office building and miss the sunset are expected to entertain themselves for reliving the pressure and relaxing. Work with the sunrise, rest with the sunset.
The feeling of the entire space circulation imitated the situation when Dionysusreturned to sleeping chambers after doing manual work in vineyardduring the sunset :
corridor —front hall –atrium– backyard
Scene 1, People who are highlighted by the sunset walk through high-rise archway. Through the journey they get rid of the unsettling from the concrete jungle.
Scene 2, When it gets darker and the red-orange color is more intense in the sunset, peoplesink into the sofa holding the cocktail.
Scene 3, The reflection after drinking for several rounds; in the squire space where there are mirrors on three sides and one projection on the other, you can look at yourself in the mirror and those movie characters rejected in the three mirrors. The feeling of both reality and illusion is in accordance with the Dionysian Spiritadvocated by Nietzsche： even life is a dream, we still make the best use of the dream while enjoying the temperamentand joyfulness in it.
Scene 4, DJ on the stage controls the rhythm of music and steps of people who will completely forget those pressure on their shoulder.
Scene 5, the music from the dance floor is flowing into the red-orange colored backyard through the doorway. People in groups of three or four sit around while holding the champagne and whispering to each other.
The major part of designing 83bands is the color of the light. Each light that is possessed with RGB digital dimming lampis able to change into fifty thousand color to ensure the relevant changes. These changes can be made according to different demand in the entire space when the bar is leased for other activities.
