Waxing salon
New York
MaxWax is a 1000 sq. ft. waxing salon located on a busy intersection of the Upper East Side in Manhattan. The interior design of the salon has been conceived with continuous curved surfaces that fluidly loop through the space separating the public and private functions. The project is inspired by the sinuous curves of the body and the fluidity of the wax material used in the salon. The vibrant orange color of the inner curved surfaces, taken from the brand's logo, delineates a peeling away of the surface, thus creating a clear identification of inside / out spaces in the salon. Interior Design: Antonio Pio Saracino + Steve Blatz
