Experiential design for Mumbai skincare clinic
Photography: Ricken Desai
Mumbai-based Urban Zen has designed the Nava Clinic, which is a skincare clinic spread over 5000 sq. ft. The client wanted a state-of-the-art and experiential design built in levelled ceilings, stretch fabric lighting, wooden angled patterns and concrete tiles with brass and terrazzo inlay. During the day, the space is illuminated by large glazing behind a cluster of planters on the pebble bed. At night, the stretch fabric ceiling replicates sunlight to keep the space ambient and bright. Terrazzo combined with lightwood veneer and concrete is widely used, with tan leather sofas and short armchairs.
The entrance features a terrazzo flooring with concrete and brass profiling, while the well-lit stretch fabric ceiling illuminates the space along with the recessed track lights. Palms, ferns and leafy plants along with moveable wooden partitions add privacy between the waiting area and consultation rooms. The Managing Director’s cabin has large windows that allow in the natural sunlight, with concrete and terrazzo flooring. It also has brass profiling, veneer panelling, storage in pastel shades and surface recessed linear lighting in the ceiling.
