Barber shop design that is unique and delivers an engaging experience is increasing in importance in the UK. Men’s grooming is one of the UK economy’s major growth areas. Coupled with coffee shops, which are predicted to outnumber pubs by 2030. Tabard Street barber Dasos Anastasis, saw this as an opportunity to add a twist to his new venture. Recognising the large numbers of successful professionals and businessmen working in the vicinity of his new shop location, Dasos wwweloped a concept designed to fuse together a high end barbering experience with an artisan style coffee shop, all under the same roof.
With their wealth of experience in salon design, Reis Design was engaged to make Dasos’s concept a reality. Taking the idea of a ‘men’s workshop’, an industrial storeconcept to convey the craftsmanship of Cutter’s Yard’s highly skilled barbers was wwweloped as an effective solution for this Barber shop design.
Dasos, together with his business partner, made a visit to Havwoods Clerkenwell showroom after Havwoods were recommended to him. Unable to decide between two shades, they decided on a striking mixed product design using Oak Notte and Oak Bronzo herringbone from The Italian Collection.
Dasos has since returned to Clerkenwell and chosen a new floor for his original Barber shop. There are plans are underway for a Cutter’s Yard salon to open at London Bridge Station in early 2018.
