The aim of the revision was to create a new format, fresh, young, able to define an aggregation space for all those who love to have fun and socialize.The interior design is not a simple “change of clothes”, but an exercise in composition, to give new meaning to the concept of the bar.

Everything starts with the discovery and rediscovery of  Cin Cin term, the most common exclamation in Italy at the time of the toast. Its origins are Chinese, and its meaning is “please, please”.This expression was used among sailors in Canton (the largest city coast in southern China) as a form of friendly and playful greeting. Afterwards this expression has been exported to European ports. The guideline has been to transform the bar in a “port”, a meeting place of social and cultural exchange.

Designing not only the outline for overlays, but the interior space by volumes subtraction has been the basic philosophy to design.Cin Cin bar is generated from wooden boxes (typical port packaging in the past).The boxes move through space, they touch the existing walls, they surround it, compress it, penetrate it.

Inside this boxes there are 20,000 transparent plastic bottles.In the evening hours, thanks to a lights automation system inside the wooden boxes, the Cin Cin comes to life.16 million colors lights follow the music and light reflection/refraction games producing a unique show, amazing for visitors.
