Berlin – The dental office was designed by Studio Karhard, the designers behind infamous nightclub Berghain.
Owned by three young dentists who wanted to re-imagine the dental experience for modern consumers, The Urban Dentist more closely resembles a bar or concept store than a clinic. The space uses materials such as stainless steel, concrete, marble and backlit glass, which is programmable, meaning that lighting can be altered.
According to its founders, the dental practice uses contemporary design to distract from the sometimes anxious experience of visiting the dentist. ‘We wanted to create an atmosphere where patients could feel relaxed and fearless,’ they tell Dezeen. ‘So we tried to avoid typical dentist colours like white and glossy surfaces.’
