Both nostalgic and futuristic, KODA is a blazingly bold hair salon perched on the upper mezzanine level of Sydney’s Queen Victoria Building. Blending the client’s progressive approach to bringing session styling to the salon and passion for Italian designer pieces (notably mid-century and selections from the seventies), it balances angled poise with organic shapes and undulating forms. With its embrace of dynamic primary colours and nuanced tones, plus Burl timbers and hybrid solid materials – including terrazzo, Marblo and high gloss Polyurethane – it instantly engages the senses.
