It’s a hair salon, in Japan, but imagine if it were a waiting room in America! It looks like it would be a fairly simple and affordable build in an existing space – maybe with the exception of the curved wooden elements. This was designed by Japanese firm MAKER (no English version). Warm & organic the layout provides a variety of spaces for different kinds of interactions moods. The sheer curtains provide a safe space that at the same time allows for visual and sound connection to desk staff so waiting patents can easily be contacted and are reassured that someone is aware of their still-waiting status.
