Architect in ChargeAnne-Sophie Poirier
Text description provided by the architects. Located on the busy High St in Armadale, Missy Lui is a nail salon that believes beauty is not just skin-deep.
By sourcing toxic free and natural products, Missy Lui offers a unique service in Melbourne which focuses on healthy and environmentally friendly nail caring.
The above philosophy initiated the brief given to Anne-Sophie Poirier, the Melbourne-based French designer behind the shop fit out.
By using a limited palette of materials, including solid Tasmanian oak, bamboo flooring, pastel colours and hanging plants, Anne-Sophie gave a minimalist yet humble, warm and welcoming look to the venue.
The manicure tables are designed to delimit a space of intimacy between client and nail carer. The various elements are designed to be easily removed and reinstalled to another venue, therefore optimising the cost and lifespan of materials.
