Cask 215 - one of the first bars in Šiauliai, which cultivates the modern meat production trends. The name, given by the bar owners, prompted the further interior development. In the centre of the room, there is a circumvented bar, which comes as an illusion to a wooden cask with its aged plates and rounded corners. The same kinds of plates are used for ceiling finishing as well. Table surfaces bonded from the same plates seem to also replicate the lid of the barrel. The boards of the aged oak floors are covered in ebony colouring. The same colour is used for all the woodworks. The space is full of dark grey detailing: such as constructions of black metal, the patterns of grey tiles were partially used, the hanging wires, concrete bar top as well as the chairs. A shade of gold colouring of the chandeliers and bar equipment was invoked to liven up this monochrome colour game. “Cask” name letters, made from neon tubes, stand out in the space. Ash paving of different diameters, that are laid out on the shelves and specially made constructions brings warmth to the strict interior. The design interior and exterior signages was also created for the site.
