Khan aims to amalgamate the concept of Night-life and Art into one. It’s a cross between a gallery and a bar.
Filled with raw materials rather than soft furniture, the design is casual and laid back. it exudes cool and instant comfort; old bath tubs doubled as couches, weapon crates as tables… the furniture is eclectic yet harmonious. The stark gray concrete walls and floors are splattered with contemporary Art. The long turquoise green wooden is held up by a rusty steel light element perforated with Arabic poetry. Warm recycled lampshades hover above creating a warm and intimate atmosphere.
