A poster from an imaginary 1973 expo, dreaming a future tomorrow that might be our today.

Step into the world of Expo '73 with 'The Bar,' where sophisticated minimalism meets a wry nod to international event signage of the 1970s. This poster playfully captures the era's penchant for austere yet stylish design, featuring the phrase 'The Bar' in English, French, and German. Because nothing says 'fun' quite like multilingual formality.

The stark black-and-white imagery of a drink on ice is the epitome of understated luxury, hinting at the elegant simplicity that characterised the aesthetic of the time. It's an artwork that finds humour in the juxtaposition of the mundane and the sophisticated—perfect for those who appreciate a touch of irony in their decor.

For aficionados of retro-futurism, minimalist design, and the subtle art of gentle humour, 'The Bar' offers a charmingly cool addition to any space. Revel in the stylish irony of an era that could make even a simple bar sign look like an exercise in highbrow international diplomacy.

This print is available in two versions - black and white - so don't forget to choose the one that best suits your decor.
