Going to see the orthodontist could be a tedious and sometimes scary event, but designer Natasha Thorpe's all-wooden dental office interior induces comfort, while you wait for the chair. "Slatted wood panels and ambient lighting" ease the ambiance of Go Orthodontistes in Quebec.
Natasha Thorpe tapped into the calming properties of timber and used the material's uncanny ability to bring out lightness within any interior design. The professional uses natural materials for the dental office interior to directly counter the feelings of anxiety or stress that is often exhibited by patients in these scenarios. This taps into the curious fact of how someone's exposure to nature or nature-derived motifs can have a strong effect on the human psyche and mood.
