Here's a short description from the architects:


“Cabello”

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.

    Nice concept but I'd like to see it in day light. I prefer to see my hair color in the sunlight..

    I *love* the idea. Love it. But I'd be worried about the amount of dust that could get caught up in the hairs-how would you clean that?

    It's a hair salon – so let's put in some plastic "hair". Hmm, not so clever an idea me thinks, a representational design is always too predictable, because there is nothing else there apart from what you see. Otherwise it's an OK space if a little over-designed. But we're talking hairdressing here and they are always over the top.
