ARKHE beauty salon in Chiba, Japan by Moriyuki Ochiai Architects

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

Article source: Moriyuki Ochiai Architects

We designed a beauty salon named ARKHE (refers to the ancient belief that water is the source of all creation) around the theme of water.

This is a space made up by the charm of its raw materials, thus, by using aluminum and bringing out the beauty of the material we bring into existence a space filled with transient and ever-changing light, like the reflection of light on the surface of water.
Recycled aluminum sheet was used to express the flow of water and hair, reflecting the airily soft light, like sparkling light on water’s surface, and filling the space with elegant and sensual curves.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo presented a summer exhibition for children entitled  GHOSTS, UNDERPANTS and STARS for which we designed a Haunted house.
The concept of this exhibition invites young visitors to consider the paradox of the rules of the museum, such as ‘Don’t Run’, ‘Don’t Touch’ or ‘Keep Quiet’ by allowing behavior normally forbidden in museums.
