Steel sections form triangular frames for mirrors and matching furnishings at a minimal hairdressers in Zurich by regional studio Raum404 .
Raum404 designers Oscar Buson and Simona La Gioia designed mirrors, stools, tables and a console solely for a salon and barbershop in the Swiss city.
Based on the shape of a children’s chalkboard, the double-sided mirrors are mounted on 15-millimetre square steel frames.
The designers named the assortment 9 Degrees right after the size of the acute angle formed in which the slanted mirrored panels meet at the prime.
“This angle allows a perfect reflection of the subject by bringing him in a shut relation between his very own intimacy and the surrounding room,” stated Buson.
Modest stools and tables have the exact same profiles as the bottom of the mirrors. Their waterproof wood-composite board surfaces are positioned just beneath the reduced edges of the mirrored panels, so they tuck neatly underneath the frames when not in use.

Taller tables have an inverted frame that gets wider in direction of the leading, and the surfaces are covered with the very same materials.
The assortment also contains a marble console, supported by a pair of upside-down triangular legs produced from copper.
“The shape based mostly on a reverse classical frame offers an outstanding lightness to the table,” Buson mentioned. “The reinforced marble board seems floating against organic excess weight forces.”
The freestanding furniture allows the salon owners to reconfigure the otherwise open area to suit their wants.
Mirrors can also be rearranged at a modest salon in Osaka, the place they hang from cables on the ceiling.
Resources had been picked to contrast with the salon’s white-painted walls and herringbone-patterned wooden flooring.
Other minimum hairdressers completed lately include one in Osaka that is divided by crimped wooden screens, and a room elsewhere in Japan decorated with white and black painted patches.
