Swiss design studio ZMIK have refurbished a hair salon in Basel, wallpapering the entrance with photocopies from Vogue magazine.
We love this design here in the office and think that it is a great use of the space. The contrast between the entrance area and the salon itself adds drama to the overall experience for the end user and is executed beautifully.
Called Nafi, the salon is divided into two distinct areas by the change in wall and floor coverings, from vintage prints and timber flooring in the reception area to the minimal white salon.
So McCabe Design bloggers have been off the radar for the last few months…we have been so busy working on our ongoing projects that we’ve found it hard to keep up with our news! One of our most exciting projects of 2009 has come to fruition with the opening of two new pilot concept stores for the national petrol station brand Topaz.
We not only worked with Topaz on envisaging a new concept and style for their interiors, but were responsible for the fit-out of one of the stores. Our concept, which has been well received in store, was to create a more localised experience with the focus on fresh and quality products. Our “Topaz Market” includes the use of bleached wood effect tiles, alongside birch-ply display units and rich solid surface counters.
This is just a snap shot of what we’re working on currently, we shall keep you posted on more exciting projects throughout 2010!
London designers IY A Studio have completed the interior of a clothing store called Folk Clothing in London that features gym equipment. We love the use of raw materials, such as the florescent tubes and distressed wood. We hope you find it inspiring too!
We are proud to say that as part of our continued relationship with mobile phone giant O2 we were involved in the completion of five new stores this August. Stores in Carlow, Buncrana, Newross, Rathfarnham and Nenagh were all project managed to completion by our team of designers. There’s no stopping here of course, work continues on a number of locations and we hope to announce further store launches soon.
