For start-up business Nailbox, their brief had two important elements. Its premises had to be 'Instagrammable'. And it needed to be pink.
Looking at the completion photos, we can safely say that design agency, Studio Able, which designed and delivered the project, smashed it on both fronts.
Nailbox is a pop-up nail and beauty salon based on the British Land owned Broughton retail park. Design agency Studio Able, which worked alongside the British Land commercialisation team and Space & People, conceptualised the entire business, from the brand identity, architecture and interior. The unit has a generous 6m x 4m footprint and with glazing to three sides, is flooded with natural light.
The architecture is inspired by Parisian boutique store fronts, with a highly Instagrammable interior, dominated by a large feature flower wall, along with a selfie swing, bespoke furniture and LED neon style signage. The bespoke unit was built by Britpods in Dundee.
