's Exhibition of Frozen Time spa in Beijing, China, was conceived to eschew the traditional impression of Chinese medicine in favour of a more clinical and technological approach.
Created for Aqua Health Clinic, the facility was conceived to use "medical principles of pulse diagnosis, medication and food therapies as the approach to design specific treatments for visitors to relieve physical and psychological fatigue."
Covering 280sq m (3,000sq ft), it offers a traditional Chinese medicine clinic and display counter, as well as areas for body care, skin detection, facial care and hair care.
A palette of pale shades and pastel colours is offset with lighting features that highlight certain elements in an otherwise calmly-lit space.
Traditional old medicine cabinets and the smell of aged herbs are done away with, with the designers instead building the theme from cosmetic spa and technological elements.
The different areas each have a different look and feel, with the hair care area, for example, encased in a glass room and the facial care area's row of treatment chairs giving a clinical feel.
A planted display case gives the reception area a sense of naturality, meanwhile, and the Chinese medicine counter has a striking aqua design and lighting scheme.
