berlin dental clinic ku64 takes dental facility planning to a place i never thought it would go. the immersive environment, crafted by berlin/beijing/la design firm graft, goes beyond decor and into installation, transporting patients to a shiny yellow land from a futuristic 1970s comic book. nothing about the office references traditional notions of dentists offices, and for this, i think it is smart. however, i can’t help but feel the landscape is so foreign in it’s lack of references to traditional anything-at-all, that many patients would feel disoriented and a bit disconcerned.
more photographs of KU 64 can be seen here on the unofficial graft flickr page, along side images of another slightly more traditional berlin dental clinic they designed, called the dental lounge.
