Copenhagen – Every design decision in Post Service's wellbeing space is dedicated to helping people manage feelings of bereavement and loss, with the intention that the holistic interior design can support mental and emotional responses.
The carefully calibrated clinic, designed by Danish studio Tableau, uses furniture, lighting and colour theory to help foster a sense of community and to boost psychological health. Every feature inside Post Service acts in harmony to support the healing process, with technology playing an important role. The organisation offers talk sessions, for example, held in private infrared saunas designed to help people confront difficult subjects through sensory stimulation. ‘I really believe that design can take a big part in helping a person become better,’ explains Julius Værnes Iversen, founder of Tableau.
As our understanding of mental health becomes more nuanced, care-giving brands will need to embrace the tenets of Synchronised Care to provide a range of solutions that address the needs of their customers. By engaging the body and mind, Post Service explores the idea that mental health is interconnected with all aspects of our lives, including the built environment.
In an increasingly unpredictable world, employers can use interior design to provide grounding effects that benefit psychological wellbeing
