ANOTHER MAKEOVER FOR EXTREME EYEBROW
EXTREME EYEBROW – PERMANENT KIOSK SITE INTU, DERBY
To design and develop an eyebrow threading kiosk that was both stylish, practical and fitted within the environment it was being situated. The concept was to be based on the previous Merryhill kiosk, but elevate it to a new level of design and creativity.
The locations for kiosk within Intu Derby are all situated on oval bridges between the main upper walkways. To ensure best fit and to adhere to the Intu guidelines, the kiosk’s would need to be designed to reflect the oval space and also include three treatment areas, till point, sink area and waiting area. The curving of the kiosk not only added practicality issues when trying to maximise space, but also increased potential build issues and costs.
The complete space was housed within a large curved wall, which in itself had a variety of subtle height differences as well as patterned shapes around the outside in all of the corporate colours to give the kiosk a real sweeping presence.
The kiosk was clearly divided into three sections, waiting, service and treatment. The waiting area was linked but totally open for customers to access and feel comfortable waiting.
The till and sink are turning back into the site, which gives a clear defining barrier to the consultants as to where they and the customers should operate. Once through this area, the customers enter a spacious, relaxing treatment zone for the consultants to operate without being on top of each other and surrounded by the privacy wall.
All of the above was pulled together with a contrasting Karndean floor tile on a raised plywood bed to give the island real presence and stand out against the centres wooden panelled floor. External lightboxes and signage have given the customers a clear indication as to what the kiosk offers and how much the treatments are with an illuminated menu board.
With this highly stylised kiosk and competitive prices, customers are queuing to get their brows shaped and styled and the business can only grow onto bigger and better things.
Another great kiosk delivered successfully by INDEX DFE, once again, thanks to all the team
