The interior of the AS Aperitivo, located in the Slovenian capitol of Ljubljana, was made by the native born designer Nika Zupanc. The architects, Arhé d.o.o., developed the building by following the motif of the 150 year old tree which it was structured around. In a sense the two nearly have grown collectively. With massive glass walls there is such of sense of integration between the tree and restaurant, that it feels as although you are merely relaxing below the canopy of the tree itself.
Nika Zupanc added the glamorous virtually bohemian styling. With a redesign of her famed Black Cherry Lamp, Nika continued the connection of the interior of the restaurant to its exterior environment. The cherry shaped pendants in each red and black styles seem to be hanging from their metal branches along the ceiling and add just the appropriate quantity of mood lighting. Making use of her classic noir-esque femme fatale style combined with the garden motif of AS Aperitivo, she enhances the space and gives it a sense of drama and intrigue. The wine bar restaurant is genuinely a stunning and rich fusion of indoor and outside spaces. The restaurant is brimming with distinct accents, wealthy with history and open to interpretation. A lot of of the furnishings have been created particularly for the restaurant. 200 year old oak wood, brought from the old family members residence of the owners, was employed not only in the furnishings, but also in the fine wooden particulars located all through the interior space.
