This front desk is at Chakra Salon and Spa in Asbury Park, NJ. The number 1 priority was to capture the attention of the public during and after hours. This desk faces the store front on a busy main street so this front panel/sign in the desk easily captures the attention of any passerby with the fiber optic details in the front facade. With the long low voltage life of the LEDs the desk can stay lit with low power consumption and provide a constant advertising platform.
The desk is bar height for comfort, the legs are cast concrete with architectural tie holes and accent depressions. They also contain attachment embeds for steel supports that allow attachment of the front facade panel as well as stabilize the base as this desk is bar height.
The 4 in thickness of the top gives the illusion of mass while it is GFRC and lightweight. The organic staining patterns blended seamlessly with the wood copper and used brick motiff of the spa. It also matches the spas marketing material and card colors and logos.
