The LAX Bar is an art installation inspired by the Loos Bar in Vienna, where you feel a bit like Alice in Wonderland. Discover more now!

The LAX Bar is an art installation inspired by the Loos Bar in Vienna, a famous American-style bar designed by the famous architect Adolf Loos in the early 1900s.

During an artist residency in Los Angeles, Ute Müller, Christoph Meier, Robert Schwarz and Lukas Stopczynski-met formed a collective. The team of artists found the idea of recreating the famous bar as a temporary place interesting. The interiors were covered with white ceramic tiles, inspired by French artist Jean-Pierre Raynaud, known for covering entire houses with white square tiles.

LAX Bar has been enriched with mirrors, which create an illusory space for visitors:

“When the door of this inconspicuous building opens, visitors, like Alice in Wonderland, fall into a sort of rabbit hole”.

The ‘LAX Bar’ focuses on “an apparently simple design that underlines the pure impact of the white material while rejecting the material opulence of the original version of Loos”.
