Designer Profile: Izzy Eling, SpaceInvader

Izzy Eling; Albert’s Didsbury, Manchester

In order to develop the traditional bar as it stands today SpaceInvader will try to establish what needs changing. With the rise in traction of social media, face to face interaction has become rare. Conversations are being left to the keypad, with the notion of meeting people in a bar being relevant to only previous generations. But what if a bar’s design could enhance these conversations and bring them to the future, not leaving them in the past?

What if the biggest barrier is the bar itself? Be it a lone guest, small or large group, the space will lend itself to its user through layout and design to achieve the end goal of being a space for the development of conversations.
