BILIR SALON PRIVÉ STUTTGART, GERMANY 2015

Ahmet Bilir, Stuttgart hair stylist who frequently takes part in international haute-couture fashion shows, has named his new salon "BILIR SALON PRIVÉ". The small elegant salon was designed by Bruzkus Batek architects, who have created a space whose boudoir character is accentuated by a homely, almost intimate atmosphere. Three neat steps lead from the street directly into the reception and waiting area, whose walls are clad with micro-fluted white panels, bringing historical stucco to mind. The adjacent salon with its four styling chairs is seen through two openings in the dividing wall. Beneath each mirror is a red marble console table on a brass pedestal. Bruzkus Batek designed the furnishings specifically for Ahmet Bilir’s salon. The differentiated lighting concept was developed for the salon by PSLAB. The so-called “colour laboratory” is located in a separate “box”, whose walls are fully clad with Persol mirrors. Thank to the shadow gaps around the circumference, the box is perceived as an independent modern element that stands in contrast to the existing building, while simultaneously reflecting it. Bruzkus Batek have created a salon with a unique atmosphere, in which classical elegance and modern accents can complement each other in harmony.
