Project description of KIZUKI+LIM by Teruhiro Yanagihara:
KIZUKI, the latest branch of the rapidly growing japanese company Less is More is located in the prestigious Raffles Hotel in the center of Singapore. The very contemporary setting, merged into the large, history-charged space, reflects the spirit of the young japanese stylists, who came to tropically hot Singapore with their ‘cool’ styles and ideas. A ‘glacier’-like structure dominates the space and separates it into reception, cutting and shampooing area. In the cutting area, large pivotable wings with mirrors fold out of the wall. When they are closed flush into the wall, the room becomes a spacious location for events and concerts. The timbered reception ‘hut’, includes a small gallery space that works as a platform for local artist.
