Hovering above Newbury Street, Salon Eva Michelle is an experimental space that turns the present into a viewing platform to observe past and future. The design features an interior stripped down to its bare essentials with exposed flooring and brick walls. A shiny bubble greets you at the door while a dark angular mirror pokes down from the ceiling forming individual styling stations. Professional hair care products are arranged across a jumbled 3D grid, and a fleet of lights hanging from the ceiling in a pattern that’s trying to tell you something. As you will see, Salon Eva Michelle is a conflicted space of contrast—black and white, top-down and bottom-up, old and new, reflective and matte. Welcome.
