Inspired by Nordic folklore, Romanian design firm The 6th Sense Interiors, released the Kraken in their latest project. Bringing their typical steampunk sensibility, designers Alexandru Tohotan and Zoltan Zelenyak have created unbelievable atmosphere in The Abyss Pub, located in Italy. Taking cues from the lore of the Kraken, the mythical creature stretches its tentacles across the bar ceiling. Placed above the steampunk bar, it defends its lair from all visitors.
“According to the myth, we wanted to create the struggle between monster and boat, and at the same time we intended to give life to the sea monster by using several elements that would suggest its dynamic: the position of the tentacles, the spears that pierce its arms,” the designers explain. “One of the sea monsters arms was placed in a way that suggests he is pulling the boat down with him into the abyss!”
