‘our interior design acts like a a framework which enables all kinds of hairstyles, daring color choices and excited faces that occur by stefania’s talented personality…and hands.’ explains studiomateriality. the customer enters the hair salon through a ‘time-capsuled’ transparent double-door entrance with curved elements formed by adhesive tapes. this re-imagined entrance dramatizes the big reveal of the space which is separated, with the right side being dedicated to the hairdressers and the left side to the clients’ waiting benches.
bubble-gum pink, pine green, lemon yellow and black and white are the main colours of the interior. ‘color obsession’ is the mojo moto of stefania’s place and it welcomes you as it is written in the central wall of the salon, presenting a typical studiomateriality emblematic positioning.
metallic frames dipped in the pop pink shade frame the mirrors where the clients can look into while getting their hair transformation. in the right back side of the salon, a large yellow-tile wall incorporates the message ‘in this house we believe in color’ and in the left back side, open-shelves store the hair products efficiently. studiomateriality has envisioned an environment where hairdos are not just changes and transformations but a whole experience and treatment for the client’s soul and mood. the designers’ intentions and aesthetic approach is highlighted by the wassily kandinsky quote ‘color is a power which directly influences the soul’.
