A bar I did using the Fibonacci sequence and other forms of sacred geometry. The keystone will be mounted above the mirror on the back wall once they have it installed. It was so much fun to use math to help with the layout of the pieces, and the client loves telling his friends that there is hidden meaning in the whole thing.

gets my vote as the coolest looking bar !!! Great Job

Don’t know anything about this Fibonacci sequence, and after doing some research, all I can figure out is that it gives me a head ache and I still hate Math !!

Thanks! It can be overwhelming when you look at it for the first time, but then you start to see it everywhere and you realize its pretty powerful and groups of people have know about it for thousands of years.

Coincidentally this bar is in Kentucky, Louisville to be exact but the clients are big UK fans. Being from MO I’ve grown up as a KU fan so had to listen to quite a bit of trash talk while I was installing this thing.

Love it! Very powerful design. when possible i try to use the ratio 1,618 in my designs. I love how maths speaks to you.

Oh I can see where that would drive a drunk crazy. : )

Very Nice Home Bar.
