Color Camp Interior
Branded Environment, Project Management, Custom Furnishings, Manufacturing
Color Camp was the dream project in more ways than one. Not only did we have a blast designing their complete brand identity from the ground up, but we were also given the opportunity to direct the design of the physical space as well. While we love forming brand’s visual identities, we’ve long dreamed of bringing some of those skills and ideas to a customer’s tangible experience of a project.
A bright white space is enlivened with bold shapes – circles, semi-circles, concave and convex shapes play across bolsters, tables, shelving, doorways and branding. A gradient mural wall and custom bright blue furnishings bring pop accents of color and provide a backdrop of varying shades for your instagram manicure moment.
We worked with the extremely talented architect J. Byron-H to create the interior design concept and make sure all our beautiful ideas would actually work in the 675 square-foot space in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles.
Together we decided we really wanted to focus on creating a sense of playful discovery and avoid the predictable, cluttered environment often associated with contemporary nail salons. Taking our cues from the already established brand identity, we had nearly fixtures and furnishings in the space custom-made to our exact specifications. This allowed us to create a truly unique space and express a sense of visual cohesiveness not possible when buying off the shelf.
To bring the brand identity into the details of the space, we started by creating custom mirrors and shelves, and moved to designing custom tables and seating that continued the sharp-and-soft juxtaposition established in the brand identity. It’s all in the details, right?
Materials & Color
Industrial materials like concrete and steel are cushioned by a vibrant gradient of pinks, oranges and blues, a contrast found throughout LA whenever the roughness of the city’s structures finds relief against its brilliant skies.
