“Barber’AS” men’s hair salon, located on the ground floor of an old building in Klaipeda Old Town. After dismantling the former ceiling, the old, several times repainted block ceiling has opened. This kind of prompted the idea of the future hair salon’s interior – to create the space of an institution that had been operating here for many years. Such hair salons are abundant in the world, especially in Western Europe. But there was no desire to do it straightforwardly, repeating the interior of some period. There was a desire to combine the attributes of the old and the new into one harmony. The flooring, which forms stylized flower blossoms from small mosaic tiles, black leather hairdressing chairs and sofas with leather stitching, reminiscent of old-fashioned retro cars, black marble with a bright pattern combined with dark, natural wood furniture gives the interior a distinctive historical weight. The individually designed and manufactured bronze-coloured ceiling luminaire is undoubtedly an interior focal point, combined with wall lamps and mirrors giving the space a sense of modernity. The hair salon also has a bar area, which is also used as a reception zone. A logo and glass decoration design have also been created for this object.
