kazukimoridesign: rin

japanese designer KAZUKIMORIDESIGN has renovated and branded a former japanese inn into an esthetic salon located in shizuoka, japan.  the interior level of the ryokan are at sea level eliminating the need for ceiling lights and reducing glare within the space. the flooring is an earthenware material and the walls are painted white which slowly gradients into a blue to take advantage of the natural light and indirect lighting. in-between the inn and spa is the powder room. the intermediate area is designed in a simple and neutral manner decorated with japanese tatami mats and washi paper. symbolic motifs of the sun and moon take their reference in this space.
