From the architect. When I design, I think about space without any stereotypes. To delete the all common sense in my mind is a key for me to bring up new or beyond ideas of spaces.

The hair salon, Lodge, was designed through the process to remove the general ideas. The hair salon offers two spaces, one is close and the other is open, to meet demands both of customers and workers. The place is divided in three spaces with a mirror and shelves, and there are no walls just as dividers.

The mirror is floating and placed only at the customers' eyelevel, and it also works as a long continuous partition for the middle of space. Because of the mirror and shelves, views of all customers who are sitting on a chair, are blocked, and they could feel the space more private. On the other hand, workers could have a view for the whole space over the top of the dividers. To control the height of the partitions made the hair salon possible to have the two types of spaces for both of customers and stuffs who have opposite demands to a salon space. Moreover, the mirror stainless plate also function to create a flow of the space, and the surface combined mirror and vibration finish could emphasize the movement more.

To delete all stereotypes of hair salon, and think about each interactive relationship at the space, was a chance to notice more possibilities of creating the salon. Makoto Tanijiri believes to design a base of ideas is more important than to design the actual space, and the process has more potential to create new space yet keeping the original function.

Very nice concept.

Nice forms, cold space, not inviting for patrons.

It's unfortunate that in such a resolved design which is all about human proportions and these spaces and the devices in them there's little people on the photos - almost none..

It takes a person in the space or next to the appliances to understand the real significance of this design.

When I saw the very first picture I thought the polished surfaces were actually computer screens hidden somehow in the steel and that this was an office space. 'Wow somebody works in a David Lynch movie' - so I thought a little disturbed.

Then I saw this was a hair saloon and surprisingly felt a little disappointed that this wasn't as crazy as I thought (it's better for the people who work there though ;-)).
