ANALYSIS, Design

Think of an old fashioned Chinese traveller's trunk that opens out to reveal a host of hidden treasures and you have the idea behind the Fur Hairdressing Salon in Melbourne, Australia.

From the imagination of Fur creative director Frank Valvo, this innovative salon appears much larger than its mere 24m².

Combining their talents with Melbourne-based Six Degrees Architects, the Fur team has created a tidy space that allows seven customers plus staff to move about.

The design concept is 70s disco kitsch with walls made from recycled basketball court timber decorated with airstrip tarmac patterns that double up as hidden storage draws and cupboards.

Flexible sets of angled and rotating mirrors coupled with reflective nightclub style mirrored columns give an increased sense of space.

Custom-designed lighting that is adjustable in direction and intensity combines with an advanced sound system that uses the latest BOSE technology adds to this unique hairdressing experience.
