Arubekki Hair is a minimalist hair salon located in Osaka, Japan, designed bynaoyamatsumoto design. The designer wanted to maintain the concrete skeleton while creating a spatial structure focused around functionality. Most notably is a play area for children that is delineated by a large opening in the wall, providing a feeling of safety. In addition, the designers wanted the customers to be able to communicate with their children through a mirror. The space utilizes an unfinished veneer material that exemplifies the barebones interior.
