The clients requested that a crown be part of the image for their new salon. As one of the co-owners said, “Hair is your crowning glory.” We responded with a” crown” of 8,000 copper rods hanging from ceiling to floor, forming a luminous scrim which lines the interior of the glass storefront. During the day, one can see more easily from inside to the outside than from the outside in, affording a certain degree of privacy for the clients. At night, while the salon in not in use, the copper screen is essentially transparent, allowing one to see through the depth of the space. From a distant vantage point, the copper screen glows like a fire or a luminous corona.
