This was the first Japanese branch of the clinic, “Tokyo International Beauty Clinic”. The president of the clinic has given medical treatment in Asia and this became the first flag ship clinic in his home country. The design was considered to remove customer’s anxiety and to add some expectation. Our client’s request is “to design Japanese style luxury dynamically”, so the space was designed to make visitors feel plot as they step into the clinic and forget the busy life in urban city.
The shape of the space is, in accordance with the building, oval. All walls were curved and hide the directivity to lead visitors next space with some feeling of expectation. Taking advantage of this curved walls, some arts and accents, such as miniature of Japanese style garden, were put in niche of walls. The flower art by Nicolai Bergmann, as an accent, added splendor to the clinic. With these deliberations, this clinic became the place give people not only medical treatment but also the best relaxation and service.
