It wasn't too difficult to identify what people were interested in Cosmoprof this year! For furniture, it was gold in its various forms and interpretations that attracted the most attention. From a piping detail on the Charme styling chair to the Ovalis Double, a 2 metre high, double sided mirror, that encouraged people to check both the furniture and their look, gold confirmed its continued appeal through new applications.
The Beauty Charme make-up chair continued to garner interest thanks to its functionality and good looks. whilst Ovalis which started life as an original wall mirror shape, has now spread to a free standing mirror and a reception desk, offering the chance to carry the innovative look throughout the salon.
For the first time, the popular wash unit Topwash was presented in an all black version with the upholstery, side panels, basin and tapware all rigorously in black. Alongside the Topwash Noir the 2 seater Privatus shampoo unit continued to impress for its comfort and ergonomics with its fully reclining mattress, ample dimensions and tiltable and depth adjustable basin. Offering similar functionality but for the pedicure market, the Nelbydro pedicure chair with its 180° swivelling chair showed that European design and quality can have its say in this challenging market. Orders have been strong for Nelbydro this year with installations in Germany, North Africa, Spain, the UK and on cruise ships too.
The Diamant and Tortue styling chairs also benefitted from the black treatment for the first time with the matt black base combining with the upholstery to create stand out versions of these chairs. Given the unique manufacturing concept behind Tortue, this was particularly satisfying.
