Salon in Bangkok by NKDW

Thousands of bamboo rods hang from the ceiling like stalactites to divide the space inside this Bangkok hair salon by Thai designer Nattapon Klinsuwan of NKDW.

Klinsuwan was inspired by the way natural caves are divided, where he noticed that "often the stalactite and stalagmite will connect and become a column, then a wall, creating rooms."

In places the poles are long enough to touch the floor, creating permeable walls to screen off the colouring and shampooing areas.

    This salon is named CHALACHOL. It’s the famous hair salon in Thailand. The founder is Dr. Somsak Chalachol #FYI

    Wow… really cool. I would say it looks more like a hotel than a salon. Wonder how much a haircut there would cost?

    Such an amazing artwork. This is really beautiful. We can see how this tall grass has other uses, apart from its medical facilities.
