World's Best Design Bars

8 x 30' (GER, FRE, 1 Ep ENG)
Bars have become a challenge for famous architects and designers from all over the world, in all large cities around the globe.

They have turned into architectural points of interest, with designers worldwide competing to create the best unconventional space that reflects city-lifestyle. Every detail is well thought-out! This series takes a close look on these temples of modern design.

Bars are synonymous with urbanity. It is a distillation of metropolitan culture; bars are “urban boxes”. The four-part series, which is currently the most comprehensive one on the topic, presents a typology of bar design, showcasing the best-designed bars in the world. In every episode we deal with around seven locations, and designers like Matteo Thun, David Chipperfield, concrete, Superpotato and Graft Architects, who reveal their ideas in interviews and who, using sketches, demonstrate how the ideas came into being. Filmed on location in 15 cities: Bangkok, Istanbul, Berlin, Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Shanghai, Tokyo, Mumbai, New York, Madrid, Milan and Hamburg, this series takes a close look on these temples of modern and contemporary design.
