世纪精剪Century Classic Salon中华园旗舰店（以下简称CCS）位于成都桐梓林社区，90年代美领馆由锦江宾馆搬迁到领事馆路，随之而来的是大量外籍人士和外企人员，逐渐形成了该社区社群对高品质体验的需求，也让这家几十年的老店拥有了一批注重品质的稳定客群。
Century Classic Salon flagship store (hereinafter referred to as CCS) is located in Tongzilin Community, Chengdu. In the 1990s, the US Consulate moved from Jinjiang Hotel to Consulate Road, as a result of which, a large number of foreigners and employees of foreign enterprises followed. Gradually, the community’s demand for high-quality experience formed, which also gave this decade-old hairdresser a number of stable customers who pay attention to quality.

In the process of shop upgrading, the brand’s demand for innovation while pursuing classics has become a breakthrough point for changing the stereotype about design. The team integrated the 20-meter-long street-facing facade and chose the way of linear design to create a delicate balance between “classic” and “modern”, giving people a feeling of the times with a coherent thread.

When we talk about “century”, it is inevitable to trace back history and look forward to the future following the logic of time. The proposal of the word “Threshold” makes the scope of imagination more concrete. “Threshold”, as the way it is translated, is usually used to describe the zone between two spaces with distinct properties with its abstract meaning in the architectural context. This intermediate zone is usually accompanied by a series of changes and flows both in physics and emotion.

The use of “Threshold” as a design language in architectural space can be traced both in the East and the West. For example, the “Moon Gate” in Chinese classical garden architecture is given an auspicious meaning thanks to its formalized language and symbolic metaphor., due to which the door is no longer a physical boundary, but a spiritual and emotional symbol. Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa’s poetic and detailed treatment of space in Tomba Brion also gives all visitors an opportunity to feel the passage of time and the metaphor of life and death.

As a middle ground connecting different areas, the doorway is the first structural element to be incorporated into the design. Green marble restores the brand’s “classic” sense of memory with its simplified classical modelling. Meanwhile, the combination of the door and the guide system can make clear the basic moving line of customers, and divides the whole space into different functional areas at the same time.

“Past” and “future” have always been the roles standing at both ends of the time axis. Through the fuzzy mirror in the doorway, customers can feel the subtle changes in their hearts while passing through. Therefore, a spiritual dialogue between “past” and “future” can be achieved, taking customers’ behavior as the media.

保持经典与时尚的共存是Century Classic Salon的经营信仰，质感及简洁表达便成为该品牌设计尤为重要的一环。“曲动的发丝”作为重要的设计元素概括英文及图形LOGO的外观，使用德国百年制纸品牌提供的号称“世界之最黑纸张”作为印刷物料的基础，极致深邃的黑色配合精致的制作工艺，品牌所表达的沉稳经典得以呈现。
To maintain the coexistence of classics and fashion is always the business belief of CCS, while texture and simple expression have become a particularly important part of the brand design. As the crucial design element, the logo of “Curving hair” summarizes the appearance of the typeface, and expresses its connotation. With the the use of paper known as “the blackest paper in the world” provided by the German hundred years-old paper brand as the basis of printing materials, with the clolor of dark black and exquisite craftsmanship, the calm and classic image of the brand is fully presented.
