We designed a beauty salon named ARKHE (refers to the ancient belief that water is the source of all creation) around the theme of water. Recyclable aluminum sheet was used to express the flow of water and hair, reflecting the airily soft light, like sparkling light on water’s surface, and filling the space with elegant and sensual curves.

The aluminum’s flow changes freely while providing a function and atmosphere suited to each area: a space with a gentle flow and a high ceiling for the haircutting area; a space with a stiff current and changes in height difference for the center aisle area and a space with a low ceiling for the waiting area.

This allows to minutely perceive the changes in light throughout the day, according to the viewer’s location and the passage of time, as well as to experience a space with transient and diverse atmospheres. Water is the source of all life, and this space projects an image of clarity as a beauty salon in pursuit of the origin of beauty.
