Isolation Unit as Architects

NE, located in central Osaka, is a hair dressers shop for a young couple that started up their own business. The small space doesn't reveal it's actual purpose and is conceived as a narrative sequence of abstracted objects and volumes. An iconic stair, that contains the wash- and backroom, marks the waiting area and serves as seating accomodation and display. Free-standing mirrored screens are positioned in the otherwise empty cutting area like sculptures. The lights and doors to the storage fold our of the walls and let them appear like made of sheets of paper.
