Client: Mister Chop Shop Bondi Junction
Date: May, 2016
Mister Chop Shop is a men’s barber located in Bondi Junction, Sydney. This new venture required a look and feel to the salon unlike it’s Chop Shop predecessor. As such, we were asked to design a barbershop like no other – A timeless modern and stylish feel juxtaposed with retro elements. Using the building’s bones, the raw concrete walls and exposed brick created a dramatic, textured backdrop for the natural timber whilst enhancing the industrial feel of the steel beams, shelving and metal light fittings.
Greenery and wharf rope was used to soften the space adding texture and natural elements. The soft leathers again added a dimension of both luxury and comfort whilst remaining masculine and inviting. Drawing inspiration from barbershops of yesteryear – this unique men’s enclave oozes style and sophistication whilst the period pieces give a subtle nod to the traditional barbershops of the 1950’s.
