Steel sections form triangular frames for mirrors and matching furniture at a minimal hairdressers in Zurich by local studio Raum404 (+ slideshow).
Raum404 designers Oscar Buson and Simona La Gioia created mirrors, stools, tables and a console exclusively for a salon and barbershop in the Swiss city.
Based on the shape of a children's chalkboard, the double-sided mirrors are mounted on 15-millimetre square steel frames.
The designers named the collection Nine Degrees after the size of the acute angle formed where the slanted mirrored panels meet at the top.
"This angle allows a perfect reflection of the subject by bringing him in a close relation between his own intimacy and the surrounding space," said Buson.
Small stools and tables have the same profiles as the bottom of the mirrors. Their waterproof wood-composite board surfaces are positioned just below the lower edges of the mirrored panels, so they tuck neatly underneath the frames when not in use.
Taller tables have an inverted frame that gets wider towards the top, and the surfaces are covered with the same material.
The collection also includes a marble console, supported by a pair of upside-down triangular legs made from copper.
"The shape based on a reverse classical frame gives an incredible lightness to the table," Buson said. "The reinforced marble board seems floating against natural weight forces."
The freestanding furniture allows the salon owners to reconfigure the otherwise open space to suit their needs.
Mirrors can also be rearranged at a small salon in Osaka, where they hang from cables on the ceiling.
Materials were chosen to contrast with the salon's white-painted walls and herringbone-patterned wooden flooring.
