For the eleventh edition of Design Week Mexico we were invited to participate on an event called Design House. Our space was originally the master bedroom and we decided to transform it into a wellness space, kind of a personal spa.

We explored the idea of wellness because is through self-care that we can get in touch with ourselves and have a moment of introspection.

In modern times we are exposed to and overdose of information and stimuli, we felt that a it was necessary to design a space to breathe and take a moment.

Interior Space invites us to dwell in a space surrounded with an atmosphere of peace and enjoy the present moment.

The materials were selected to make you feel protected and contained, the oak wooden floor, the plain face brick and the creamy finish on walls made of Chukum are earthy elements that suggest a connection to nature. The Chukum is a material made out of resin from an endemic tree of Yucatán, México. The green velvet curtain contrasts with the brick and frames the seating area. We selected some of Bludot’s furniture for this space and invited Emma Boomkamp to design the rug which she made specially for this corner.

The center piece of this area is a terrazzo counter that contains the sink by Kohler and a set of mirrors with a perimetral led light responding to a full size mirror hung from floor to ceiling in the corner of the space. At the back, framing this space, was a niche where some glass panels floated with a light emerging from their edges. This niche appeared as a space dedicated to a beauty product alchemist full of test tubes and glass containers.

The most withdrawn area is the tub area coated almost completely by Chukum. Is a more private area where over a pyramidal form we played with the light coming out from each step and placed a selection of objects of colleagues and friends such as Lenpo, MA, Perla Valtierra and some pieces of a Galería Alterna´s artists.
