A previously retail store is transformed into a thematic space, inspired by the 30’s and a vintage lifestyle, being one of the most popular and upcoming barber shops on a commercial street in the Northeastern suburbs of Athens. The antique barber chair becomes the protagonist of the space; all other elements function as a setting for the choreography of the barber around the chair. Brick coverings on the walls create a warm background, the wooden floor and counter add a natural note to the whole image and the large green wall hosts mirrors of different shapes and sizes. Vintage furniture, antique equipment and unique decorative elements, complement the shop and enhance the retro feeling in visitors.
