Seeing some pictures of this 3D project, it was difficult for us to figure out that this place is not a whimsical themed park for children, but an original looking bar design. Who would have thought? French graphic designer is responsible for organizing this very attractive and playful concept of a bar located in Nantes, France, right at the top of a 144m building called Tour de Bretagne.
Very suggestively entitled “Le Nid” (which means “the nest” in English), the bar is very popular since its opening and it may be a pleasant way to start your journey to Nantes. A bit unusual for a bar design, “Le Nid” is home to a strange white bird (40 meters long), half asleep, who watches quietly over the city. His reassuring presence invites the visitors to come enjoy the 360° view. His large body serves as a bar, whilst his neck runs to the other end of the space having of both sides enormous eggshells turned into seats and tables. On the walls, a series of bright posters immortalize in a graphical manner 14 emblematic places of the metropolis. The location has also a unique soundtrack, Niwouinwouin, which add originality and completes the ingenious artwork.
