Relax: Interiors for Human Wellness
Karim Rashid, Anneke Bokern
Frame Publishers, 2007 - Architecture - 255 pages
"Wellness and body care are gaining importance - and not only among the rich and famous. In today's fast-paced world, people welcome a place to chill out, to release stress, to recharge. A huge number of wellness centres and related facilities continue to appear in response to this popular demand. Thirty-two of the hottest designs are showcased in Relax. The book is divided into three sections: Spas, Salons and Gyms. Each project featured has been selected for its aesthetic qualities and for the designer's innovative approach to health and wellbeing. Relax presents work by well-established names such as Mario Botta, Steven Holl and Karim Rashid, while also introducing younger talent, perhaps less well known but definitely worth watching. All projects areaccompanied by high-quality photography, in-depth essays, floor plans, project details and contact information. Each section ends with one beautifully designed but unrealized project, illustrated with renderings. Enjoy viewing interiors whose superb design gives a vigorous boost to human wellness." -- Back cover.
