Threads of plastic hang like hair from the ceiling of this dark beauty salon in Belgrade, Serbia.
Designers a2rhitektura painted the walls of the Cabello salon black and hung the threads to mask an uneven ceiling.
A rectangular ash bench lines one wall of the salon, while a line of chairs opposite face a single mirror with a red outline.

Here's a short description from the architects:
Cosmetic salon "cabello" is located in new belgrade, at the omladinskih brigada street 90b, airport city. It is made for a private investor who has given freedom to designers in addition to interior design and company name and overall visual identity.
Since it is a rented space in which the previous owner made certain changes in the level of ceiling (plaster pronounced ceiling beams) which should not have to be changed, the designers have decided that the entire treatment area in a black tone that allowed visual hide (removal of the third dimension) of the dominant elements of the ceiling as well as other inherited structures in the interior.
In order to achieve continuous ceiling height to the existing structure is hung "hair", or black plastic threads on the distance a thick hide allow the existing ceiling structure and the formation of flickering ceiling, which is slightly shifted due to air flow and movement of people at the local level.
In addition to black tones dominate the interior elements of furniture made of natural wood-ash brushed, which, with its very distinctive structure emphasises natural materials. Tactility and natural materials applied to a desk, bench seating and a large shelf was imperative in making the project and details of furniture. as the only focus in space, there is a particular shade of purple light, which marks the visual space and reminds us that this is a women's hairdresser.
Although in its interior measurements relatively small, the author realised it pieces of furniture made of brushed natural ash, specially designed printed application on the walls and glass surfaces and literally applied a new visual identity of the space, making it important for authors.
