This Hair Salon has separate cubicles for the privacy of clients. Whilst preserving the privacy, our aim was to create the impression of a large open space.
We produced connecting rooms akin to a "colony of ants".
Using room dividers, individual spaces were created giving seated customers their privacy. But at the same time,
staff can use the space as a one large room free to move around and work together to provide efficient service.
The flat ceiling is built of 4.5mm-thick steel plate supported by
60φ columns. There are two sorts: one loads the perpendicular force and the other the lateral.
Three slightly different types
of 50,000 holes (manually produced) permeate the steel plate. These were designed to produce a gradient lighting pattern resembling a lotus.
