Minneapolis- St. Paul International Airport (MSP) recently received an upgrade in style. Longtime Minnesota resident and Bizarre Foods host, Andrew Zimmern, brings international flavors back to his home state in his new airport culinary venture, Minnibar. With the introduction of Minnibar’s globally inspired sandwich bar and café, airport guests can enjoy food and beverages in a tasteful atmosphere without having to leave the terminal.

Glossy finishes and curved surfaces were used in conjunction with hidden LED lights to create a dynamic, sparkling effect as one moves about Minnibar’s structure. The design team needed high levels of illumination to help with food prep and to create a powerful visual impact on airport guests. Their challenge was to ensure that the sources of light would remain unseen, so they could maintain the integrity of the custom-built structure.
