魔术酒吧 Knight bar 是GB SPACE(⾼白空间设计事务所)设计的一家具有近景魔术表演独特体验的酒吧，位于北京市朝阳区将台⻄路上东8号北楼底商，项⽬面积约为40平米。
Knight bar is a bar designed by GB SPACE with a unique experience of close-up magic performance. This project is located at the bottom of the north building at No.8 Shangdong, Jiangtai West Road, Chaoyang district, Beijing. The total area of the project is 40 square meters.
In this project, the designers combines the characteristics of the magic to try to present real and virtual fun experiences in an unrealistic way. The inspiration comes from the film Inception, the film breaks the physical conventions and flips the city, changes the original sensory perception, and brings a visual feast. We use flipped as a language to design the structure of the space, blurring the boundaries of the space to cause people to think and imagine, bing people into this unreal atmosphere and enjoy the charm of magic.
从⼊口的设计开始，相比传统的具有明显标志的商业⼊口，设计师试图“隐藏”这个酒吧，外⽴面整 体⿊色调处理理，正⾯分了三个门，贴上了单向透视贴膜，让⼈迷惑真正的入口，需要找到进门按钮 才可以开启这段奇妙的旅程，魔术酒吧的标志也在⿊⾊玻璃下时隐时现。空间中存在很多⻔的元 素，外⽴面、玄关、分割后勤区域的推拉⻔、卫生间内部的虚拟⻔造型，这些门将人的情绪带⼊到 魔术这个特别的主题。
Starting from the entrance design, compared to the traditional commercial entrance with obvious signs, the designers tried to “hide”this bar. The facade is overall black tone, divided three doors on the front pasted with unidirectional fluoroscopy film, which made people confused about the real entrance, and need to find the entry button to start this wonderful journey. The logo of the magic bar is also appearing casually under the black glass. There are many door elements in the space, from the facade, the entrance hall, the sliding door that divides the logistics area, to the visual door shape inside the bathroom, and these doors bring people’s emotions to the special theme of magic.
The interior is mainly composed of bar area, booth area, toilet and kitchen. The designers divided the aisle between the bar area and the kitchen area, with a red glass sliding door to create a good barrier to the front performance area, which separated the circulation between guests and employees, bringing extreme visual experience. Unlike the traditional bar, the magic bar has a close-up magic performance, which requires the bar to be more like a platform for performance, we have widened the width of this bar to meet the space for magicians to perform, so that the bar guests can be in the same platform as the magicians. The high tables and bar chairs are settled at the other side of the bar, so that the guests in this area can also watch magic at the same time, make the entire bar area forms a performance area.
The height of the space is limited and the space is quite small, The curved surface effects are hand-made by the workers, which better fits the site scale and save more space. The curved surface on the wall is made by pv plaster lines, and the opposite bar also used the wood board to complete the curve corresponding to it. The grid above the bar is full of bottles, so that the bottles can continue from the ceiling to the elevation, enhancing the expression of the flipped wall. The space is dominated by dark walnut wood, dark red wall painted and red glass, with the reflective effects of silver metal, creating a vintage and mystery atmosphere of the space.
灯光⽅面主要以魔术表演区域为重点照明， 利用遥控装置在表演过程中调整射灯⻆度和聚焦光源， 座位区和卡座区域运⽤小瓦数射灯照明，灯带作为氛围光融⼊周围环境。
In terms of lighting, mainly focuses on the magic performance area. The remote control is used to adjust the angle and focus the spotlights during the performance. Small wattage spotlights are used in the seating area and the booth area, and the led light belt is integrated into the surrounding environment as the ambient light.
