Silver Lyan

A celebration of cultural exchange

Situated in the lower level of the brand new Riggs hotel in Washington DC, Silver Lyan is the first stateside bar from peerless mixologist Ryan Chetiyawardana (AKA Mr Lyan).

Ryan’s vision for the bar draws inspiration from the meetings and mixing of cultures in America. The identity reflects this idea of ‘ever changing’, as well as acting as a playful nod to Mr Lyan disrupting the Washington drinks scene.

The scanimation technique extends to digital assets including website and Instagram content. We also produced two large scale wooden art pieces for the bar in which graphic lines form giant hidden images or messages—only revealed when viewed from a distance.
