As one approaches the central space, curved, free-flowing furniture around a tree replicates a serene landscape, directing user movement. A material palette of warm neutrals and natural textures creates a welcoming atmosphere for the customers.

An efficient workflow is ensured through the distinct division of zones within the space. The pedicure zone features an inverted design displaying a tiny boundary at the front and stepped seating at the rear side.

Functional aspects like storage tables and pedicure stations are built into each area of the nail zone, enhancing the working environment for technicians.
