@fgpatelier is known for creating mega-scale projects on a global playing field. SO what’s the draw of a small salon on a nondescript block in Los Angeles? Turns out, plenty. The shop, helmed by celebrity stylist Ted Gibson, is a prototype for the salon of the future Thanks to a connection with Amazon, this to be a trail-blazing smart salon blends technology and design–including Alexa. @fgpatelier deconstructed the paradigm of stylists’ stations and shampoo bowls and constructed his own landscape. Five wavy, cloud-like pods—within a setting of “gallery-white” walls and glossy black epoxy flooring—offer a semi-private, futuristic environment for stylist and client. The ribbed pods are made of laser-cut MDF with LED strips integrated at every six to eight ribs. The lighting is covered with an acrylic plate, and “each strip is on a separate circuit activated by Alexa,” the architect notes.
