Giahi Tattoo & Piercing

IDA14 by Karsten Schmidt as Architects

The new Giahi Tattoo & Piercing Studio in the former Falken Pharmacy in the heart of Lucerne’s old town apperas in an old rose color and contrasting, light, minimal and linear elements.

In addition to four tattoo and one piercing rooms on the 1st floor, on the ground floor clients can find piercings, jewelery, accessories and care products presented on filigree, under-lit shelving systems, even more emphasized by glass cubes and drawer furniture. The self-designed aluminum-clad cashier desk and the coffee counter top made of solid Verde Maritaca granite make very clear statements.

Not to be overlooked is the new suspended metal staircase, which sets a great accent with its filigree contrasting the first two concrete steps in the boutique shop.
