zaha hadid: fudge pop up hair salon

‘fudge pop-up hair salon’ by zaha hadid

‘fudge pop-up hair salon’ is a space designed by zaha hadid in collaboration with the fudge hair brand in celebration of london fashion week and the london design festival (LDF). each work station is positioned in the middle of the floor – unlike typical hair salons where they are situated along the wall – defined by bold polygonal outlines that add a graphic element to the predominantly black and white space. the temporary shop is open until september 21st, with appointments by invitation only – although the public is welcome to view the space – and is located inside the 4,800 square foot zaha hadid design gallery where pieces by the firm are being exhibited as part of LDF.

work stations are defined by black, polygonal outlines

    DanDan says:

    cris says:
  • oh that’s terrible i bet nobody don’t like this

    yaha says:
  • where is pay-point and hair washing stand? Is there only chairs?

    neti says:
  • how many people will walk in there for a hair cut, forget anything they were thinking and say “I want my hair to look like…that!” and point to that white hawky lookin thing in the corner?

    bazinga says:
  • the last photo feels like a shrapnel is going to decapitate you

    andy says:
  • ‘customers can view zaha hadid’s work from the salon chair’ : is that supposed to be a feature?!? oh my god I cant stop laughing. the slogan: get an overpriced haircut in a silent monochrome room while you are given the blessing of staring at zaha hadid’s knife-like fragments pointing at your face….oh zaha

    Otat says:
  • Leave Zaha Alone Please!
    Leave Zaha alone,right now! I mean it!

    Anyone that has a problem with her you deal with me, because she is not well right now.


    Britney says:
  • its ok, luckily we’re only criticizing her work and not herself personally, which is why comments are allowed in the first place right?

    :) says:
  • Zaha did it……….?

    nick says:
  • A pure work of art. It serves no other purpose than that it was designd for. Insane beauty

    Tsamaiso says:
  • What’s the point? To me it’s just narcistic formalism …

    @ Britney: What is your problem? Miss H. has no problem being harsh on others, so why be soft on her.

    x says:
  • Oh dear… where’s the rest of it?

    Deon says:
  • I bet this is an AWESOME Space. Miss Hadid is like a Graffiti Artist!
