Another bar design that caught my attention is the M Ultra Lounge that was designed by Dimitris Economou Interiors and was completed in June, 2012. It is located at Mykonos Island in Greece. The project is about a cosmopolitan lounge and bar area clad with intricate details while providing inspiring soundtracks, signature cocktails and Asian fusion foods to international clientele.
The owner David Morales – a famous DJ and producer – has made a significant leap in business in Mykonos Island by coming up of his very own lounge bar. Greece – just like any other part of the world – suffered a lot economically in the past few years. But knowing that Greece had its very own night life, Morales didn’t hesitate to open up his very own business that will attract both local and international celebrities.
Dimitris Economou was tasked to create the M Ultra Lounge and the challenge he has to face was obvious – to “satisfy an internationally renowned and Grammy-winning house music DJ and producer David Morales.” This challenge made me think ‘shoot for the stars!’ Then again, Dimitris Economou nailed this one out and did not fail the man who traveled across the globe, visited and played on all clubs worldwide. The only guidelines that the owner gave out are simple and concise, sexy, colored and Miami – I don’t know but it seems to me like a word jumble.
But honestly, I have to give my salute to Dimitris Economou for taking this project and successfully conquered the challenge by combining a cosmopolitan style with Aegean scenery and landscape of Mykonos. There is no such thing as ‘chance’ here because everything has been carefully planned and thought of, which was why the project was considered successful – too successful in fact.
The design has all the relaxing elements like silk and viscose texture, cozy furniture, plants, waterfall and bamboo ceiling. All of these elements had transformed the bar into a comfortable patio where you can spend a night of laxity and serenity – which in my opinion is really a misnomer of being a bar. The white cement floor is reminiscent of Aegean architecture which was combined with white wood laser-cut surfaces. This resulted to a dominant island color similar to Mykonos Island – its location. The fixtures all throughout the bar had an ethnic touch.
While I cannot say I would be seen hanging out in one of these lounges soon, design-wise it is ultra-attractive and very alluring.
