Alkalai Shop and Wine Bar by Shahar Katsav, Tel Aviv

April 5th, 2012 by retail design blog

Wine shop, which provides pouring services and small dishes appropriate for wine. An intimate space in a cellar-style atmosphere, which is partially disconnected from the Tel Aviv streets. In planning the space, a long-time problem was addressed: horizontal storage of the wine bottles, as is required, whilst still ensuring a clear view of the bottle’s label.

The solution is a unique one and the place has, since opening, provided inspiration to other wine bars and restaurants. In the front, I used a triple-layered glass wall, where the middle layer is shattered. This element breaks the link between the inside and the outside, which creates intimacy in the internal space.

The glasses and decanter holder is made of a bent stainless steel rod and a galvanized screen. The door is made in two parts, which allows either full or partial opening , and also comes off its hinges easily and is used as an additional table at events.
