Isolation Unit, the product and interiors company established by designer Teruhiro Yanagihara, has sent us images of a recently completed hair salon in Tokyo.

The salon is for fashionable Japanese hairdressing chain Lim and consists of a theatrically minimal installation within the host building's untreated concrete frame.

The project was completed late last year. Photographs are by Takumi Ota.

    wow, I’m speechless. it manages to be both funny and disgusting- maybe the wasted space is a statement? in a small space, it would be proper, this just invites images of secret police arresting you as you check the back and the stylist is putting their scissors away.

    Scary! Looks like “Silent Hill – The Salon”.

    Love it, the hair cutting makes the statement rather than tacky decor

    Whilst managing to be intriguing, the walls seem to float in relation to each other, brilliantly lit, at once calming and meditative.

    I can imaging being there immediately!
