Design Practice Location:
Dent Lounge is a new dental clinic in Kiev, Ukraine. The idea for its creation was a cosy interior with a homely atmosphere. It aims to change the attitudes of patients – both adults and children – towards dentist clinics, influencing them to enjoy their visits. The variation of paints is soft, quiet, but not dull. Patterns of lighting were designed with consideration of regulatory requirements. Practically all furniture, including soft furnishings and even the sconces, were designed and manufactured by Buro21. Many natural materials were used in this project, such as marble, natural veneer, brass, gesso and wood. Multitudes of mirrors in treatment rooms create a feeling of boundless space. Because the premises are for medical use only, there is minimal decoration apart from vases with flowers.
