Studiomateriality spreads its color palette in a hair salon’s interior in Koridallos, Athens.
Stefania Saraili’s space, designed by studiomateriality and Miltos Kontogiannis, provides a home for the hairdresser, full of fun and colors.
‘’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.’’
The customer comes through a ‘time-capsuled’ transparent double-door entrance with curved elements formed by adhesive tapes. This re-imagined entrance dramatises the big reveal of the space in which the space on the right is dedicated to the hairdressers and on the left the waiting benches.
Bubble-gum pink, pine green, lemon yellow and black and white are the dominant colours that make this place stand-out.
‘’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. Typical studiomateriality emblematic positioning.
Metallic frames dipped in the pop pink shade form the mirrors where the clients can look at while getting their hair transformation.
In the right back side a large yellow-tile wall incorporates the message ‘’in this house we believe in color’’ and on the back of the salon open-shelves efficiently store the hair products.
Studiomaterially has envisioned a modern doll house where hairdo’s are not just changes and transformation but a whole experience and treatment for the client’s soul and mood.
“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” ~ Wassily Kandinsky
