BMW art bar

pure electric power

In partnership with BMW, the Art Bar will become an exciting activation canvas for BMW’s new electric car model, the i3. The BMW i3 is an urban car driven by pure electric power and customized for the requirement of a sustainable and emission-free mobility.


Unique to DENFAIR’s contemporary art section, The Gallery, the BMW Art Bar is a lively meeting place and conceptually charged activation canvas for the BMW i3. To connect the narrative around the vehicle to the Art Bar experience, DENFAIR commissioned multimedia design studio ENESS to produce a graphic work that will explore notions of distance and habitual travel through use of symbology, projection mapping and LED technologies.

Like any well-conceived design, the BMW i3 represents an integrated and harmonious concept where every detail has been optimised to its purpose. The consistently sustainable design of the BMW i3 makes it the perfect vehicle for urban environments and modern day demands: driven by pure electric power and customised for the requirements of a sustainable and emission-free mobility, it embodies an intelligent form of travel.
