Tin Restaurant and Bar: Gritty Glamor in Berlin

Julie Carlson May 01, 2012

Tin Restaurant and Bar in Berlin demonstrates how glamorous mundane materials like concrete, hammered zinc, gray paint, and halogen bulbs can be.

Designed by Karhard Architektur, the interior features the humblest of materials: cement-bonded wood particle boards, a long custom zinc bar burnished to a sheen with thousands of hammer blows, and 82 standard halogen bulbs suspended from the ceiling. The only off-the-shelf product used? The ICF Myto Cantilever Adirondack seating by Konstantin Grcic. For more information, go to Tin Restaurant and Bar.
