Feminine Accents Make a Nail Salon Pop

Located in the middle of the Blue Harbor development in Beijing's Chaoyang District, Lily Nails Salon is inspired by the wonderful shapes, patterns and shadows formed by lace. These two dimensional floral arrangements create a sense of escapism and delicate beauty as customers enjoy a manicure and pedicure with a refined setting. Delicate and yet incredibly strong, this seemingly fragile lace is in fact made from laser cut steel. Designed by ARCHSTUDIO, Lily Nails salon is an entirely contemporary setting in which to enjoy a little pampering.

Lying within Beijing's Blue Harbor project, Lily Nails Salon whisks visitors away into a land where fantasy becomes reality. Ensconced within a metallic lace structure, the design focused on making two dimensional floral patterns become three dimensional spaces. Feminine and delicate, the nail salon is at once a space for women, but women with a little steel.

An irregular shape, the salon is elongated and the walls fit together in straight and curved lines, interlacing as it were, in order to create a more regular internal shape. In the interior, the curved walls create spaces formanicures, beauty treatments, a reception area, storage space and more forming zones that alternate between private and public and resulting in interesting shapes and areas that capture the imagination.
