What will you need to create a smart working space, hairdressing salon that will attract young, open-minded customers? Designers Galina Milkova and Nedko Nikolov from Think Forward studio used a light zen inspired colour scheme, mirror wall and modern furniture to create Studio A.
Studio A – hairdressing salon – is located in Galleria shopping centre in Burgas, Bulgaria. The creative challenge is optimizing insufficient area into a smart working space. The ethical one – reduction of the elements until reaching the functional minimum and the tranquil maximum of the space. A hair shop, an information desk, waiting client’s seats, two hairdressing chairs, sink chair area, a wardrobe and a storage squeeze into 35 square metres. The optical expansion of the space is achieved through the design of the furniture that puts in order and hides all hairdressers’ attributes: the light zen inspired colour scheme; the mirror wall. The calming nature theme is revealed through the sand painted walls, the crystal water coloured sink chair area, the wooden furniture, the green tree – all a prerequisite for a soothing experience.
