"Hidden (in English — "hidden") is a place in the alleys of the Arbat, where you can hide from the noisy city, go unnoticed for a moment and devote this time to yourself," is how designer Ekaterina Belyaeva describes the concept of her project.
The beauty here is in everything, not only in the services, but also in the interior! A calm and cozy atmosphere has been recreated in the salon due to natural materials, light color solutions that play in contrast with bright details!
The waiting area welcomes guests with a duet of Bloom air chandeliers from the Italian brand Kartell. Created by designer Feruccio Laviani from premium polycarbonate, the lamp creates a unique play of light, scattering rays through hundreds of petals. The whole ball is dotted with small flowers, each of which creates the illusion of a weightless floral cloud.
Chandeliers perfectly harmonize with the Kabuki floor lamp, which decorates the recreation area. Thanks to the unique polycarbonate injection technology, Kartell managed to create a "woven" design similar to lace, with a unique perforated surface through which light is scattered.
The art of "sitting" is given special attention in the project! The hidden salon is decorated with Kartell and Bontempi Casa chairs.
In the cafe and lecture hall there are A.I and Masters chairs in the usual and bar configurations.
Each of these models has its own unique history and value.
A.I. is a real revolution, a manifesto of a new era of furniture and decor making. This is the world\'s first chair designed using artificial intelligence.
The Masters chair is a "quote" where the silhouettes of three famous models from famous designers of the twentieth century are "encrypted". These are the "Series 7" chair by Arne Jacobsen, the "Tulip" chair by Eero Saarinen and the "Eiffel" chair by Charles Eames. Combining three design masterpieces allowed Kartell and Philippe Starck to create "a new product, a new project, a reflection of our changed world.
It is not surprising that these chairs from the bold and revolutionary Kartell brand have found their place in the new location. There is also a Spoon table, which is a folding office table of lightweight design, characterized by extreme lightness and practicality. The thickness of the structural surface made of porous aluminum is only 15 mm. The finish is made of white laminate, and the painted lower surface of the sides of methacrylate gives the transparent structure a depth effect.
Mood chairs from the Bontempi Casa brand have a completely different character! They have found their place in the manicure area! A comfortable soft ergonomic armchair upholstered in fabric stands on a comfortable leg made of lacquered steel on wheels!
The famous Componibili container of pale pink color, which has long become a classic of modern design, is hidden in the ladies\' room! The multilayer cylindrical storage system, which was created by architect Anna Castelli Ferrieri, was created specifically for people living in large cities.
The hidden salon is a must-visit! Not only for the sake of quality services, but also for the sake of aesthetic pleasure and an incredible atmosphere! This project is truly worthy of attention. Ripe design, bright details and pieces of furniture that will not leave you indifferent.
All pieces of furniture are available to order in 2Shades galleries!
