Prisma Cocktail Station, designed by Franco Driusso, wins the award ‘Premio Rēgula 2022’ in the Design section

Prisma_Cocktail Station 03

The innovative project of a real bar on wheels – compact and fully-equipped – for indoor and outdoor use.

Design, technology and functionality are combined to create the Cocktail Station designed by Franco Driusso for Prisma. A solid AISI 304 stainless steel block, equipped with all the tools that a bartender or hospitality professional may need.

Only 210 cm long, 80 cm deep and 120 cm high, the Cocktail Station provides everything necessary for the preparation and presentation of drinks, as well as useful solutions to optimise time and procedures: from the cutting area to the insulated ice bin, garnish rails, POS station, refrigerated drawers, triple water tank, display showcase for bottles, drain board, blender station and many more. The front, in addition to its showcase with concealed linear LED strips that emphasise its scenic effect, is conceived to be customised. Indeed, the cladding is equipped with a magnetic hooking system and can be made in the desired colours and materials.

These solutions do not alter the minimalist aesthetics of the block made of geometrical and essential lines beneath which a high-performance machine is concealed. It is equal to a real bar and just requires a power source to operate. Six stainless-steel castors allow the Cocktail Station to be moved and placed indoor and outdoor, according to the space needs. Thanks to a self-contained water supply and discharge system, the station is totally self sufficient and can be used in the most diverse situations.

“With this product we have worked to combine the two main areas of excellence of Prisma in a completely innovative way. That is, the processing of steel for professional catering and the ability to guarantee the most cutting-edge industrial technologies, with well-finished details and a minimalist customisable design” says architect Franco Driusso, who has worked with Prisma (TV) aiming to further strengthen its footprint in the world of international bartending.

The set of values promoted by the Cocktail Station led to its victory in the Rēgula 2022 Award for the “Interior and Design” category. It was announced in January 2023 and organised by Associazione Liber, under the patronage of the Ministries of Culture, Ecological Transition, Infrastructure and Transport, with the collaboration of the publisher Riccardo Dell’Anna’s Red publishing house.
