AKZ Architectura has recently completed the interiors for one of Kyiv’s trendiest new bars: Naïve 

Having opened just last month in Ukraine’s capital city Kyiv,  Zuieva Katya and Olga Malyshenko of AKZ Architectura were requested to design the interiors for Naïve. The clients tasked the pair to: create a space that is fundamentally different from all the Kyiv bars that include bricks, wood and rusty metal.

With such a large amount of creative freedom, the designers opted to take their inspiration from the sparkling wine that would be served at the bar. They wanted to try to show an interior that is the very essence of the drink, alongside its lightness and symbolism in celebration.

With this in mind, bright yet gentle colours were employed throughout the interior, with Art Deco-style furniture and accents being used throughout. A graphic black and white bathroom space adds to the fun of the environment, and even includes a fire mirror.

Because of the bar’s location in a basement, the team had to overcome challenges such as exposed pipes that have been cleverly concealed. The firm is most proud of the fact that all of the products used in the project have come from local companies, from the mirrors and furniture to the bar and the paper flowers that hang behind it.
