MONTREAL – The owners of Blunt, a well-established hair salon, pounced on the opportunity to expand its footprint when a neighboring tenant moved out.
Blunt contracted Issadesign, also of Montreal, to design a layout that merged the existing space with the new one.
To preserve Blunt's original visual signature, Issadesign opted to keep the tubular structures that characterized the salon. To give them a new lease on life and tie in with the new design theme, the structures were re-painted gold.
To meet the challenge of bringing the old and new spaces together, Issadesign combined concrete with brass for many of the functional and visual elements. This texture is accompanied by warm tones of gold to create a trendy industrial atmosphere. In addition, local cabinetmaker Ébénisterie Top Design contributed the wood fixtures.
A bar-café, located in the center of the redesigned space, acts as a socializing place and connecting core. Within the new sector is a large reception counter with a work and consultation area in the back dedicated to the trichology service, a study in hair health.
