mogeen hair salon by dirk van berkel

‘mogeen’ interior design by dirk van berkel

one of amsterdam’s best hair salons mogeen owned by hester wernert and siko van berkel has relocated to a new address – and dutch designer dirk van berkel has sent designboom images of the newly redesigned space. mogeen is known for high profile hairdressing – regularly looking after clients for shows such as chloe, yamamoto, stella mccartney and jan taminiau. the new establishment’s larger space is able to accommodate mogeen’s hairdressing academy along side catering for the heavy-weight fashion icons – with the 255 square meter interior design exuding a refreshingly informal yet stylish atmosphere.

fusing natural elements with the industrial, the aesthetic is one that reflects that of its renowned founders – a collage of national and international covers of hester and siko’s work adorning the walls as a testament to their esteem. greenery spills over a ceiling of hanging flowerpots, contrasted against a lattice of copper detailing and suspended lighting. after being greeted with a welcome drink, the lively, dynamic ambience assures you are in the best service – complemented by a candid charm permeating the space that only the best would settle for.
