Musk and Moss, located in San Pedro Garza García, México, is a new hair salon focused on image assessment, style, and personal care, offering an exclusive service for men.
Our concept is inspired by a primitive cave. The interior atmosphere revives classic mens’ barbershops where a connection between the client, surroundings, and other activities is encouraged.
We designed each work station based on three elements; mirrors with a perimeter LED light, black stainless polished steel, and wooden salam drawers that serve as useful work tables with multiple outlets for barber accessories.
The inside space is mainly made from two materials: polished concrete and granite — a material that holds its own unique composition through its vein patterns. These materials divide the space into different areas, granite defines the reception and working station, and polished concrete bounds the hair-washing and accessories showcase area.
We considered the reception to be more of an open space where people could interact directly with everyone without any interruption. A waiting couch was designed in leather with the purpose of spreading its particular scent and to inspire a living room sensation along with a guitar for anyone to play his own guitar riffs.
Our graphic design concept is merely based on hand drawings. The sketches communicate the style and primitive essence of the space. It focuses on the idea that each customer is a work of art, whereas the stylist is the artist.
