It´s based on entertainment places like those we can enjoy in summer holidays, for example, the beach… The purpose of these entertainment places, along with their beauty and the incessant mobility of their waves, are what inspire the author of the FIESTA bar, with a simple and functional line, modular but also usable as a single piece. A bar like this reminds us the freedom with which we lived the joyful days of our youth, when beaches weren’t covered with people until the last grain of sand, where we could play football without provoking anybody to anger. In fact one of the shapes it can form is the circle, the symbol of pureness, a recall to the ancestral shapes, devoid of useless frills. Nevertheless, a fiesta is not eternal, so what remains us to do is to keep it alive at least within ourselves, if only with the aid of a beautiful bar.
