As an ode to this era and the contribution of impressionism in shaping the urban landscape of Amsterdam, the theme of the design challenge is to be inspired by the impressionist paintings that were part of the city’s art scene over time.

Brief: The challenge of the competition is to design a speakeasy by taking impressionism as the theme inspiration.

The interiors of modern speakeasies are enchanting and often theme-based, to maintain the allure of the era. The design must convey a story of a certain time, that is brought to life through its creative interpretation in the physical setting. The context will play a role in the design interpretation.

The speakeasy must cater to a minimum of 45 visitors. The aim is to revamp the 1920’s speakeasy trend into a modern version through the story of the impressionist era. The theme inspiration must be adequately justified. The aesthetics and functionality must be balanced for the interior as well as a form of the structure.

Arlisa Febriani, Indonesia
Winner of the Blue Bag Competition 2015 – Full Scholarship and living costs paid for at Lund University
Arlisa’s story is very unique and proof that given the right opportunity, the greatest ideas will succeed. By developing a revolutionary water cleansing system, she proved that anything is possible. This is great news for her, the people of Jakarta, and quite possibly the rest of the world who live in places with little or no access to clean water!
