The Polish Buck Studio envisioned an urban sanatorium into an art gallery. The project implemented sums up what a wellness center can offer on 76 square meters and gives some air to the people of Wrocław.
Many people complain that they cannot accept or understand contemporary art. Visitors of the permanent exhibition of BWA Gallery in Wrocław, Poland are not exposed to this danger: in the project titled Żyjnia (Lifery), they can enjoy the art meanwhile having a wellness experience.
In this case, the work of art is the interior itself, created by the designers of Buck Studio. The design was inspired by spa culture, and the designers reached all the way back to the roots: to the world of the sanatoriums and health centers in Lower Silesia. This is how they got to the characteristic light green shade, which is dominant all over the space. The interior is complemented by plants and oval seats designed expressly for this place, while the central element is an island covered with glass brick.
Anyone longing for a little recharge in their busy days may enter the 76-square-meter facility. The gallery contributes to the experience with herb infusion teas and aromatherapy vaporizers.
The foam green shades, the plants hanged from the ceiling and the glass brick wall truly oozes something nostalgic, very Eastern-European mood, yet Lifery still has an indisputably urban and contemporary interior.
