The DKUK hair salon has customers looking at art rather than their own reflections when getting their hair done
Spotted: South London-based DKUK hair salon has customers looking at artwork rather than their own reflections when getting their hair done. Designed by Sam Jacob Studio, the concept is aiming to redefine how art and work can come together by replacing mirrors with artwork.
If this worries you, customers can still see their finished hair. At the end of the salon lies a see-through cabinet, which at the flick of a switch becomes reflective.
Finally, the main room also serves as a gallery. “The new design combines cultural space with social enterprise to support new approaches to how art and life can be brought together productively, making a new type of gallery space and new ways of showing art,” head of the studio, Sam Jacob, explained to Dezeen.com
“Our design acts like a framework that enables all kinds of exciting possibilities to occur at their intersection,” he added.
