For over 50 years, the reputable Pivot Point International Academy has been teaching students to become exceptional hair stylists. Their renowned Academies are located in over 50 different countries, but they call Chicago home. The founder, Leo Passage, was forward-thinking in how he approached hair styling. Similar to how we look at interior design, he looked at the elements and principles of design, and worked them into his curriculum. We used these design tenets when we updated the reception area in their corporate headquarters, and enhanced offices and conference rooms. Their reception area is grand, so the design had to follow suit – new items included large porcelain floor tiles, furniture imported from Europe, and an internally illuminated custom designed reception desk. A new paint scheme, flooring, lighting, and branded messaging were incorporated throughout the Pivot Point International Academy headquarters.
