Rubí was Sophie Aurélie’s first interior design project. The client knew her experience in the film industry as set decorator and needed someone creative to give an exceptional personality to the derelict old bar. We picked a 50’s retro tropical style that reflected well the personality of the client who liked the art of that era. The beautiful Brazilian wood bar, with its carefully designed with hidden compartment for better alcohol control and its spacious bartenders work space is certainly the center piece of te space.. A sensual and fun concept, created with the help of Carmen Miranda’s iconic pineapple hair piece ridding a banana, made the space a total hit from the very start.
