ISSADESIGN combines white backdrop with pinkish storage units for flower-inspired nail salon

Montreal-based environmental design agency ISSADESIGN has designed a nail salon that combines white backdrop with pinkish storage units for flower-inspired salon in Montréal, Canada.

Named Diva, the 135-square-metre salon, created for Les ongles DIVA nails, is situated in the heart of Montreal and offers a new experience to its customers.

Exploring the theme of flowering, the interiors are designed to offer its customers a temporary escape from urban life, while meeting the demands and needs of the modern person seeking agility and practicality in beauty services.

"The brand identity is the embryo of the project," according to the studio. "The salon goes far beyond aesthetics by creating a space that allows for a better user experience, as well as the creation of a sense of belonging for the customer." 

The salon offers a minimal but impressive and relaxing space quality, dominated by white and pink colors. To achieve this, the studio is inspired by the lotus flower, the project has a close relationship with nature, not only through the use of colour, flowers, and small-scale planting, but also through more subtle solutions implemented in the design. 

In other words, the patterns, furniture shapes, lighting, and other components of the project have all been carefully selected in the spirit of biophilia.

Two areas of activity were designed due to technical constraints and special ventilation needs, as the studio explained. There is a nail application area, as well as a second area focusing on manicures and pedicures. The reception area delimits these areas and distributes the services.

Display areas nod to the shape of nails by creating arches. These recessed storage units are intended to highlight the large selection of nail polish colours offered by the salon. 

The custom-made work tables are a perfect reminder of this curve. Overall, the project reflects its owners' approachable and inviting style.
