IL COLPO Shanghai IFC Salon

IL COLPO Shanghai IFC is our most recent design for the biggest hair salon, beauty salon and SPA group in Hong Kong and recently expanding to Mainland with presence in most of cities. ii Hair & Nail Shanghai is one of their top brands, located in the heart of Pudong area in the IFC complex. The site offers unique views to the city and the Shanghai TV tower. 

Our concept takes the inspiration from the high rise buildings, the sky and the clouds. A clean and neat environment with soft and smooth geometry welcome the guests from the entrance, the front desk the floor and walls are all unified with one material.

Light gray terrazzo create a continuous and pure environment detached from the ceiling by a gap of 500mm white wall lighted up by LED lines. In the ceiling clouds of soft film moves freely through the space. The result not only emphasized our concept but also wash the room with the necessary illumination that a hair salon requires.  

Art pieces where adding in the composition. In the shop front window, sculptures of metal reminds us the clouds and guide us to the reception lobby. In the middle of the plan, originally a heavy column structure was transformed into central feature that pictures the movements of the space. A touch of dark wood add contrast to the materials board. From the window the shanghai tower reminds us the sky.
