Evidens de Beauté’s first Paris salon, devoted to the face and hair, marks a milestone for the ten-year-old beauty label and a major step for young interior architect Emmanuelle Simon.
Like the brand, the space is an homage to Japan, a serene world of sober shades, tatami mats and raku shelves. So soothing it has just won Best Calm Spot in the Wallpaper* Design Awards. To create a feeling of intimacy from the moment you arrive, Simon has turned what could have been a banal corridor into an appealing arched passage in polished concrete. It leads to a spiral staircase wrapped around a weathered tree trunk, and treatment rooms with ceilings featuring white bas-reliefs of Japanese landscapes by the artist Zoltàn Zsakó.
For maximum zenitude, rest on a natural linen-clad bed, and experience a transporting facial based on ceremonial Saho techniques.
