Text description provided by the architects. Crosby Studios is a young Moscow based architectural bureau founded by Harry Nuriev and Dmitry Vorontsov. The parlour is located in a 19th century building in the historical Kitay-Gorod district of Moscow. The parlour is split into two zones.

All the walls are decorated with perforated metal from a Russian factory. The wall panels are grey, which the signature colour of the parlour. The panels hide the communications. The bathroom is done completely in pink. The main space is dedicated to the manicure hall.

The 19th century ceiling was left without extra plaster. The modern black light fixtures accentuate the complex texture. The hardwood floors are well-preserved, but required partial reconstruction. The missing parts were filled with pink patches that conceptually bring the old and the new together.

The center of the room is where the island table for three clients stands, it was designed specifically for the parlour. The tall granite carcass of the table accentuates the height of the ceilings. The decorative racks with arches of various sizes are from the Crosby Studios collection.
