Healthy design taken seriously

INTERIOR designer and architect Wayne Ruga sits in a London café and asks for a glass of still water. But they’ve only got Perrier.

INTERIOR designer and architect Wayne Ruga sits in a London café and asks for a glass of still water.

But they’ve only got Perrier. Carrot juice? No thanks.

Herbal tea would suffice – but then he realises it’ll be made with tap water. He decides to pass. He’s from California.

Ruga is here on a mission to promote The Center for Health Design. It services a worldwide network of 25 000 people, nearly half of whom are architects and interior designers, though the centre’s UK database is dominated by architects.

In a nutshell, the centre provides free information about environmental design. “We’re planting the seeds for the future, the time will come when awareness of life-enhancing design will be needed in the mainstream,” says Ruga. The centre offers publications, research results and symposia.
