Architect Kryštof Blažek of studio minio created an interior design for a talented hair stylist's signature hair studio in Prague's Karlín district. Located in a converted 19th century factory building, the studio has high vaults supported by a cast iron column and two large showcase windows, and it opens directly onto the street.
Inside, the appearance is slightly industrial with unfinished concrete walls, a sanded concrete floor, a vaulted ceiling retaining its white colour, and atypical weathered oak furniture combined with black square tube underframes.
The hair salon is lit by wall lamps and two custom-made rod chandeliers specially designed by studia minio in timeless black and white. The light is diffused and soft, with light emanating from white
The interior is split up with a black metal screen, dividing the washing and colouring stations from the front entrance area and separate workstations, where two black hair salon chairs are on either side of a solo double-sided oval mirror.
The intentionally monochrome interior puts the spotlight on the vast range of standout hair colours and styles.
