Beauty Salon

BUILT PROJECT / MaxWax is a 1000 square foot beauty salon located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The salon’s interior is designed with continuously curved surfaces that fluidly loop through space, separating public and private areas. The project is inspired by the sinuous curves of the body and the fluidity of the wax material used in the salon. The vibrant orange color of the inner curved surfaces, taken from the brand’s logo, denotes a peeling away from the surface layer and clearly differentiates the salon’s inner and outer spaces.
