Chinese interior design firm RIGI Design has completed a waiting area for a children’s dental clinic that feels like a home away from home

We all know how daunting the dentist can be for children, especially with surgeries that are sterile and outdated. In Tianjin, china, RIGI Design – led by Liu Kai – has turned that preconception on its head by injecting colour and life into a Pediatric Dental centre in the city.

Working alongside the owner, RIGI Design decided to use circles as the basic design element, and warm materials such as wood were brought in to lighten the existing space. A bright colour palette was used alongside paler hues and fun shapes in the waiting area, to create a lively play area for children in the waiting room.

Minimal signage was utilised throughout the space to transform the atmosphere from a typical medical-type interior to somewhere more relaxed. By treating the space as if it was a typical home interior rather than a dental clinic, the designers have managed to create an inviting area for both children and their families.
