Beauty and grooming spaces in India definitely takes us into the culture and aura that’s derived from history that it had gone through. One of the prime era that celebrates design and fashion and made a huge impact on genesis of Indian fashion and glamour was from Mughals.
The Salon is spread around in 6000sqft into three levels ground floor, mezzanine and basement. The whole composition of the space is modern that’s formulated by bold planes and that layers the spaces and creates a visual connect simultaneously. The Dance of planes and flat ceiling weaves the space into modern format. The accessories, installations, decor and color pallet hails from ottoman period.
The most bold feature is the color pallet that is made out of powder pink combined with emerald green, lapis blue and Burmese ruby red. The entire pallet is scattered around the space and clearly defines various elements individually like plane, drapes and accessories.
Walking through the main reception is a double height space that creates the perfect sense of arrival and features the installation of 100 ittar bottles all illuminated on a brass shelves. The double height walls have square puncture that’s on mezzanine and appears like a modern jharokha from a haveli, double height arch opening and ceremonial elephant art and a red Mughal chandelier.
As one move towards the shampoo station which further leads to salon’s hair cutting section that’s double height with long drapes of curtain and emerald green console, plush soft cushioned wall boiserie in velvet.
