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.
