This project is an authentic Thai massage spa but the original space had no visual Thai signature. Customers visit the spa to relax, therefore, the designer started the project from a new angle: to embrace the calming elements of nature – the universe and the starry sky – with the aim of creating a space where guests can rest and re-energise. The project uses a variety of reflective materials to extend the lighting to infinity, while avoiding any possible eye damage to customers. Optical fibre was placed on the ceiling, inside the space, to ensure there is no glare, but gives customers a soft and deep starry sky overhead.
