Vermilion Zhou Design Group designed this ethereal massage studio in Shanghai, China.The aim is for the guest to experience a journey of recovery from their fatigue, and experience the healing by activating the human’s five senses. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.
From the architects:
A gentle and calm “moon” space, with the poetic and mystery sense, can quickly switch the mood, then release the fatigue from the body to soul.
Green Massage aims at providing soothing professional healthcare to busy people with fast-paced urban life in a private and elegant environment. It leads to the modern concept of health and healthcare, integrating modern scientific techniques on the basis of the theory of traditional Chinese medicine. It dredges the channels and collaterals, nourishes one’s spirit and relieves pressure through comprehensive conscious massage, and other methods.
With its unique business operation, how to provide the quality and professional service has its high requisition. The whole treatment process is not only in the single massage room, it is starting from the entrance when the guest walks inside. This is a journey for the guest to recover from their fatigue, and the healing way is to touch for the human’s five senses.
To satisfy the basic function, and to upgrade the whole sense of experience, that is our purpose.
“Moon” has become our design concept. We try to isolate the hustle and bustle which is located in the busy shopping mall. The gray tone and texture full around in the whole space is like the surface of the moon, quietly diluting all the restlessness. There is no sharp angle in the space, we used the curve to shape the line in the space, with gently light-reflecting, like the moon reflected the sunlight, it has become a soft filter, which naturally filters the disturbance from the outside.
The ”Moon” can be seen everywhere inside the space, the installation artwork “Moon Light” created by artist Yang Yong is the poetic highlight in the space. The ball light and wall light also respond to the “Moon” figure, guide the people step by step into their healing journey, in order to remove their daily fatigue, In Green Massage design, the purpose is to through the whole sense of interior experience then complete the journey. “As the moon is lasting, as the sun is rising”, is the circulation of the universe, every restart is fresh return, will bring the back the highlight I the lifetime.
