Bath and beauty goods brand Molton Brown is to launch therapy rooms at Bluewater Shopping Centre in November, with interiors designed by The Syntax Group. Called the Molton Brown Lotus Gardens and billed as a ‘therapeutic space’ for men and women, the centre features six personal ‘lotus pods’. The pods are ‘comforting, enclosed and warm’ and have a ‘floating panel’ above the space with a concealed colour changer and curved projection screen, says The Syntax Group project architect Asif Iqbal. Once therapies begin the screen will be illuminated with moving light, as will one wall, to ‘give a sense of your personal space getting bigger’, explains Iqbal.
The brand has been given a new look by Bulletproof, in a bid to make “luxury” chocolate more palatable for a contemporary audience.
Luke Powell and Jody Hudson-Powell have worked on the new identity system, which has been designed to help the museum attract a broader new audience.
The company’s new identity has been designed by Studio Sutherl&, the consultancy behind Royal Mail’s Agatha Christie stamps from 2016.
