A small, long-established hairdresser’s salon required a complete makeover. The aim was to give the very tight space a breadth, in which, rather than becoming lost, clients could take a sensual, visual voyage of discovery, drawn in by the atmosphere. With the help of fine lime plaster and a jointless brown-red stone floor the almost cubic, 26-m² space is transformed into the “white cube”, at the heart of which stands an ivory-coloured item of furniture.
Much in the style of a baroque table cabinet – and much to the astonishment of the clients – this item of furniture accommodates everything needed by a fully-equipped salon: from the washing area, till, bar and storage space for care products, towels and glasses to a stair that leads to the elevated back office.
The interior of the ivory-coloured object has an orange finish and a multitude of mirrors, which ensure that, from certain angles, this interior dissolves in a diffuse infinity. The vertical wall mirrors and the reflective surface of the counter continue this game into the space. A net-like, droplet-shaped chandelier completes the atmosphere.
