A surprising design from the Romanian firm Twins Studio. Their idea for the Fratelly Studio club from Bucharest, Romania is, let’s say, grandiose.The club is located in an industrial-like building, with the classic large metallic pillars and metal beams. The main idea for this club seems to have been “ Think Big!”. Indeed, it is a very imposing construction on the outside, as well as on the inside.
The interior walls are covered with a series of large wooden blades, about four meters tall, which can be rotated along their central axis. This allows you to change the whole look of the club in just a few minutes. One side of the room is lacquered wood, while the other can be covered with printed material. A nice combination between rustic and modern.
The main attraction of this place, however, is the large 4 rings chandelier above the bar from the center. And when I say large, I actually mean huge. This oversized detail, if I may call it like this, can be looked at from two different perspectives. You can either love it or hate it.
If you’re the glamorous type who thinks that bigger is always better and who loves shiny and sparkling things, you’re going to enjoy this place. If, however, you’re a moderate person with an eye for elegant details, you’re going to classify this club as “too much”. I think this place would look a lot nicer without that painful chandelier hanging above the guests. Sometimes you have to know when to stop.
