Japanese Design Absurdist Mental Health Clinic
A bit kooky, but nothing too out of the ordinary, right? No. Hah. Wrong. Feast your eyes on this:
They really were serious about the “opening new doors” bit, weren’t they? In fact, only one of the doors in the clinic works in the way that it actually should. Understandably, it’s the one which leads to the outside world — you know, where it’s normal. Otherwise though, the other doors are tweaked to appear as parts of the wall, fully decorated with knick-knacks in order to…perplex? expand the mind?
The clinic, which specializes in “total mental health care,” hopes to express a specific philosophy through this interior design. Contrary to the traditional model of mental health care in which the patient is supposed to return to a “zero” neutral point, MD.net Clinic believes that patients should leave with a greater richness than they ever experienced before.
Just saying, it’s probably not a good idea to put mentally unstable people in that space. Especially considering reality’s probably quite destabilized for them already. Cool concept, though.
What do you think? Will the patients lose their minds completely in this wacky architecture or will the doctors crack first?
