This beautiful hallway looks like a chic, modern hotel doesn’t it? They even have a chair in case you want to stare at the rug a little while longer and a stag in case you need someone to talk to but don’t use those doors. They don’t work… you open sections of the walls.
While nendo’s design is supposed to soothe and avoid patients starting from a negative space- a closed door, I’m wondering what this would be like in person. A door that never opens is a little bit of a mind bending isn’t it? How is this really going to help people who want to get back to feeling part of life? Might I suggest spending a litle time with the Japanese thereupeutic robot Paro? I find him a little more soothing and he’s portable.
