A minimalist interior that speaks of calm and decompression gives this nail salon a physical manifestation of the attitude that pervades the space. Jurors appreciated the details, materials and strong concept for the salon, and they particularly liked the ribbon of wood that morphs from manicure bar into reception desk, into a light soffit, and ultimately into outdoor signage. Materials such as resin paneling, upholstery and tile are all selected to enhance the stress-less atmosphere of the salon.
