Japanese design office id has created a modern look for acupuncture and moxibustion clinic SUMIYOSHIDO Kampo Lounge
At SUMIYOSHIDO Kampo Lounge, doctors prescribe wholly oriental medicines. Located in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, the space is surrounded by shelves, harking back to the days when these were often seen in many pharmacies. Open drawers are designed to display natural medicine samples, allowing people to feel and interact with each product.
A mint green colour has been used throughout the dispensary part of the project, expressing the world of herbal medicine. In contrast, the clinic for acupuncture and moxibustion is a quiet space of uniform white. Thick curtains have been integrated into the examination room to help soften the atmosphere for users.
The project has a particularly striking effect as it is on the ground level looking onto a street. With the juxtaposition of the mint green and the white, a clear division shows that the one building has two very different spaces that are used for two very different purposes.
