Mechanical Workshop Bar, Bucharest, Romania
Designed by Corvin Cristian
, the Atelier Mecanic (Mechanical Workshop) is a bar made of 1950 to 1970 industrial relics, salvaged leftovers, graphics and original furniture.It is a take on the industrialization of the country during communism. Romanians have an uncomfortable relationship with their past which usually ends up in simply erasing it: factories were perceived as a symbol of communism and keeping some memories of it was by no means a priority after the Revolution. 50 years of industrialization vanished in no time thrown at the scrap yard. Atelier Mecanic ironically brings them back.
