Introducing the Apollo 2 Icon: The Evolution of a Barbering Icon Continues

November 04, 2016

The Apollo 2 has become an international symbol of barbering since its introduction in 1961. Its combination of timeless style, traditional features and unrivalled build quality has seen this chair grace barbershops and salons all over the world, delivering decades of eye-catching style and uninterrupted performance.

In 2013, Takara Belmont famously collaborated with Bentley to create a show-stopping Apollo 2 with quilted upholstery and white diamond stitching, capturing the imaginations of barbers the world over. Since then, this chair has toured the globe, garnering popularity for its discerning features and gentlemanly style. As barbering continues to evolve and grow, there has been a rise in luxury barbershops and prestige male grooming establishments and the demand for chairs with distinction has become stronger than ever. Recognising this, Takara Belmont extends the Apollo 2 dynasty, introducing the Apollo 2 Icon

Featuring a handsome quilted upholstery with white diamond-stitching and optional contrasting piping, the new Apollo 2 Icon has been elegantly restyled, and is the latest addition to the iconic Apollo 2 collection. Classic features remain; its timeless design, unmistakable style, robust structure and distinctive footplate are unchanged. 

Available in a wide range of upholstery colours, the Apollo 2 Icon can be customised to perfectly complement your salon or barbershop interior, whilst traditional features including the integrated ashtray and shaving bowl add an authentic touch. Choose from a traditional hydraulic base or the new MTR2 motorised base, which delivers optimum access and manoeuvrability for the stylist or barber.

Smooth Operator: Introducing the MTR2 Motorised Base

July 01, 2016

As world-leaders in salon furniture and equipment innovation, we are continually looking for ways to refine and improve upon our legacy. Today we are pleased to announce the launch of the MTR2 motorised base, an evolution of the original MTR. 

Subtly refined with a sleeker, more modern look, the MTR2 offers a smooth and comfortable experience for the client, whilst delivering optimum access and manoeuvrability for the stylist or barber. Quicker than a traditional hydraulic base, this new motorised option also saves time in a busy salon environment.  

Perfectly paired with the Apollo 2 and Apollo 2 Elite, the MTR2 is available in three colour options; black, silver and white, easily complimenting your favourite chairs. Other chairs available with the new motorised base option includes the GT Sportsman and Legacy 95. 

“The MTR2 base is already proving a popular choice after we unveiled it with the Apollo 2 at Barber Connect earlier this week”, says Andre Dupratt, National Sales Manager at Takara Belmont. “With its sleek design, quick and easy functionality and compatibility with some of our most iconic chairs, we are sure it will become a favoured customisable option with salons and barbershops”.  

For more information on the MTR2 or to book a visit at your nearest Takara Belmont showroom please call 020 7515 0333 or email
