Lior Vaknin is a young designer from Israel who became interested in design at an early age. As a child Lior spent time building tree houses outdoors, later working for a design firm, and finally seeking a formal education in design. He now heads up design work at Prototype Designers based in Tel Aviv, Israel. Lior was kind enough to send me pictures of a recent project featuring a barber shop design in Rehovot, Israel. Drawing upon the human hair strand as inspiration, Lior created this wonderful contemporary salon. I was fascinated by the wonderful shapes and imagery of the interior and how the shapes flow and move together. My reaction is much like the possibilities with the human hair strand in the way of its color, shape, and size as it relates to personal hair style.
