For a project in Palm Beach, Florida, Sergio Mercado Design devised a minimalist space, allowing the colorful artwork to take center stage. The firm constructed the bar from mitered and joined slabs of stone, creating the illusion of a single solid block of stone. Pieces by Nick Dawes, David Burdney, and Murray Fredericks hang on the walls, and the modular Edra sectional is paired with a Mondo Collection table.
