Lisa Katayama of Boingboing reports today that design firm Nendo has created an innovative space for a Tokyo-based mental health clinic. The clinic reportedly boasts optical illusions, hidden openings in the wall and sliding bookshelves as doors.
Katayama via Nendo writes, 'Rather than getting patients back to a 'zero', a neutral starting place, the traditional model for mental health care, the clinic aims to provide patients with something extra: a further richness in their daily lives that they did not have before starting treatment. The interior design is an attempt to express this philosophy in space.'
