Getting Fit by Appearance

13 March 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

An interior design company has shown what can be achieved by the imaginative use of glass in a health clinic.

 The Spanish and French team – Alguacil & Perkoff – won the contract for a health clinic in Chelsea.

They both created and supplied this a door that was meant to be elegant and graceful. A&P worked very closely with the founders of the clinic to capture their intentions.

The design and colour were influenced by electrical connections, and the transmission of thoughts and synapse firing of the brain, reflecting the high-tech medical work carried out at the clinic.

Picture: The imaginative use of glass is evident in this recent installation in a health clinic in Chelsea by Alguacil & Perkoff.
