Design of the place is based around a simple concept derived from the jagged, angular forms created by free falling hair which can be found on the floor of any busy salon. This striking arrangement which occurs on the floor will now be transformed throughout the interior to create a dynamic, vibrant space. The salon carries a secondary function – it also serves as an exhibition space for the work of young designer’s, the clothes hand picked by a famous Polish designer Gosia Baczynska.
A fitting room is concealed behind the curtain wall which visually separates the retail function from the hair dresser’s zone. Inclined wall planes are bisected by horizontal cuts which open shelf space for the exhibited hair products along with the functional sink surface.
Tall slender mirror columns serve to both clients and the stylists, offering abundance of storage and function inside. Spacial dynamism and multiple reflections offer multiple perspectives into the space resulting in a playful, creative environment for the hair masters. Waiting space is strategically located along the window openings as well as at the entrance to offer a unique viewing experience for customers.
