Silk, is an elegant, serene medical spa. The boutique treatment center prides itself with having the most current state-of-the-art skin care devices, technologies and amenities in order to support skin care.
Satisfying two physicians and their spouses, all of whom had four very different aesthetic viewpoints, and finding compromise guiding them to a consensus was the stumbling block.
In order to establish a unified design direction, we prepared a number of visual concept boards that included colors, textures, materials, retailing applications, lighting, and various architectural details to illustrate a potential interior mood and emotion. From there, it was a matter of listening deeply to all of the clients’ collective thoughts, and pinpoint a direction. It was unanimously agreed that incorporating “sweeping forms” in one way or another would be reminiscent of and symbolize smooth silk.
From the moment you walk through the door, the skin care spa exudes a peaceful, calming feeling. Graceful, textured forms are found throughout the space. Suspended rings provide general illumination as a concealed linear light cove grazes the dramatically, shadowed limestone wall. Dominant and subliminal silhouettes are found in the artwork, logo, and packaging. This level of detail reinforces the intricate hands-on approach the Silk spa providers give to their clients.
