Astir Umi bar

In December 2019, the new Umi bar was completed The bar was constructed on the south side of Matchuhisa restaurant, in Astir Hotel resort in Vouliagmeni on the southern east coast of Attica.The project included the construction of a new ensemble made of curved varnished oak elements whose form refers to an islet or tree branches. For the upper surface of the bar the chosen material was light blue onyx. Particular attention was paid to the lighting of the area. Minor spotlights were used to provide directional lighting from the ceiling while the bar itself was lighted by two different hidden light zones placed beneath the onyx surface. The structure of the onyx enables the semi-permeability of the light offering a rather impressive effect.
