Valencia-based design practice Clap Studio has designed a medicine clinic that features real and conceptual flowers evoking a sinuous field of Aster flowers in bloom in Valencia, Spain.
Named Septiembre Clinic, the interiors of clinic represent freshness and naturalness where artisan elements and touches come together.
Located in the city of Valencia, the interiors have "a fresh, young and disruptive character", challenging the traditional medicine aesthetics around the world.
The young studio, led by Jordi Iranzo and Àngela Montagud, aimed to create a spatial communication unique to its interior design and enhance user experience.
"The aim of the project was to create an aesthetic medicine clinic getting away from traditional aesthetics and that would stand-out from its communication to its interior design and user experience," said Clap Studio.
The studio draws inspiration from the month of September, in which it takes its own name for the project, and from some very special flowers called Aster.
"The characteristic of these flowers is that they bloom in September and not in spring," said the studio.
"This act of blooming, apart from being a nice simile with what happens inside the clinic, was the concept for the design of the space."
The architects have added natural wooden stands accompanied by real and conceptual flowers represent a sinuous field of Aster flowers in bloom.
Highlights include handcrafted and imperfect finishes that lead customers to "an honest, relaxed and far from artifice space where naturalness is key."
The interiors are shaped around creamy tones that contrast with the desaturated blue of the brand and a sun that illuminates and gives energy to the space.
Inside, all the conceptual flowers are added as removable elements, being able to leave the whole of the stands empty so that more people can be accommodated if the space is used for product presentations or events.
These stands that conceptualize the Aster flowers, are product stands or stands for magazines and books.
"The aim of (September) is for the user to achieve calm and wellbeing. With this in mind, inside the treatment rooms we added curtains that cover the entire perimeter in a curved shape," said Jordi Iranzo, Clap's creative director.
"These curtains hide all the visual noise typical of clinics and also blur the straight lines and sharp corners of the walls."
"These curved shapes and the soft texture of the curtains transport the user to the inside of their own bubble, to that 'me time', a state of calm and peace that is emphasized by the use of dim lighting on the walls and ceiling," Iranzo added.
According to the studio, September is a young brand that is constantly playing between the bold and the restrained.
In the same way, in the interior Clap Studio looks for a balance between natural materials in cream tones and industrial finishes with bold shades such as yellow or blue, characteristic of the brand.

Clap Studio also designed the interiors of a restaurant that mimics a sunset on the beach with colorful components, materials and colors in Valencia.
Founded in 2017 based in Valencia but working worldwide, Clap Studio is focused on the design of experiences through interiors, product and artistic installations.
