Jose Eber is arguably the most recognized hairstylist in the world with his hands in the hair of Hollywood’s most beloved stars and having the opportunity to work with Jose’s nephew and creative director, Yoav Tauber and the whole team in New Jersey was an amazing experience. For this project we designed and produced the key custom furnishings including banquettes, reception desks, make-up stations, pedicure benches, nail tables, blow dry bar, color bar, back bars and dispensaries. These gorgeous pieces were all hand crafted and finished in a high gloss white lacquer finish in our facility near Chicago, IL.
WHOLE FOODS MARKET, MILK & HONEY SPA, BOSTON, MA
Our goal and directive for this new spa for the world’s leading grocery store in natural and organic foods, was to create an eco-friendly design that fit the Whole Foods Market brand while integrating sustainability, functionality and style. To accomplish this, we fused a modern mix of bamboo, solid surface, earth-friendly veneers and faux leathers that could withstand daily wear and tear on all of the custom spa furniture installed for the successful launch of this new business category. The new design found in the Ink Block District of Boston is raw, urban, uber hip and very happening. Check it out!
