INSPIRATION: Joe Munson designed and fabricated a custom kitchen bar from a 16-foot long, 1,200-pound solid sheet of steel finished in high-gloss automotive paint. Truly the epicenter of the kitchen, the bar is illuminated by micro-fluorescent lights found in LCD laptop screens and includes thoughtful details like a built-in acrylic vase, integrated electrical outlets, and illuminated square push-button switches from Switzerland.
