The latest branch of the rapidly growing Japanese company "Less is More" is located in the prestigious Raffles hotel in the center of Singapore. The very contemporary setting, merged into the large history-charged space, reflects the spirit of young Japanese stylists, who came to tropically hot Singapore with their "cool" styles and ideas.
The Japanese architectural firm Teruhiro Yanagihara chose to create a "glacier"-like structure that dominates the space and separates it into reception, cutting and shampooing area. In the cutting area large pivotable wings with mirrors fold out of the wall. When they are closed they flush into the wall allowing the room to become a spacious location for events and concerts. The timbered reception "hut", includes a small gallery space that works as a platform for local artists.
Teruhiro Yanagihara also chose to include a number of Offecct products in the interiors of the Singapore branch of Kizuki+Lim, such as the Bond easy chair designed by Jean-Marie Massaud
