Lokal Lieshout / Lieshout Cafè
For the tall, airy café space in the second upper story of the Kunstsammlung am Grabbeplatz, the Lieshout studio has devised a completely interior design, including a bar which projects dramatically into the space, tables, chairs, lamps, a bookcase, and tableware. The Lokal Lieshout is already open for business during museum opening hours.
All surfaces in the Lokal Lieshout have been integrated into the color scheme, whose choice of tones was determined by “guided” chance. In his design, artist Joap van Lieshout (*1963) responds to the art of classical modernism on view in the adjacent galleries by opposing it with his own universe of “primitive modernism,” consisting of blocky forms which seem almost to have been hewn of sto
Recruited to furnish the creative redesign of the Pardo Bar was Cuban-born artist Jorge Pardo, whose new décor encompasses walls and lighting. During the daytime, the café is enveloped in a cheerful soap bubble pattern consisting of orange and green tones. During the evening hours, green, interlocking shade lamps transform the space into a bar with psychedelic overtones.
The Pardo Bar is open beyond the opening hours of the K21 Ständehaus.
