Salon d'Hotes 2003

Salon d’Hotes is a luxury hair and beauty destination located in the exclusive St Germain precinct of Paris.

Jean-Claude Gallon of renown Carita, was highly influential in the concept briefing phase, to ensure his knowledge of the clientele and the French tradition of receiving guests, was put to good use. Finally an architect was needed who could interpret equally the needs of a Japanese investor and a French designer and to deliver the whole project in under six months.

The design aims to make the customers feel good about themselves so that they have the impression that everyone and everything is there for them. More than once, journalists stated ‘… ideas so obvious and thoughtful, you wonder why it hasn’t been done before’.
