Located on a busy street in Melbourne, Australia, Missy Lui by local firm Sasufi is a nail salon that believes beauty is not just skin-deep. By sourcing toxic free and natural products, Missy Lui offers a unique service in Melbourne which focuses on healthy and environmentally friendly nail caring. The above philosophy initiated the general design brief. By using a limited palette of materials, including solid Tasmanian oak, bamboo flooring, pastel colors and hanging plants, a minimalist yet humble, warm and welcoming venue is created. The manicure tables are designed to delimit a space of intimacy between client and nail carer. The various elements are designed to be easily removed and reinstalled to another venue, therefore optimising the cost and lifespan of materials.
