david/nicolas took an unusual approach when it came to designing this bar. Looking at the gymnastics beam, a form that symbolizes balance, they created Bar Michele, a quirky piece for a very specific environment.

Combining a mix of leather, polished brass, Iranian white Onyx marble, and black painted metal, the bar will certainly be a conversation piece in whichever spot you decide to place it. Whether you decide to jump up there and drink face-to-face with someone or stand beside it and let one of the tables hold your drink, you can bet none of your friends are going to have anything like it.
