Singapore – Design duo Rachel Wingfeld and Mathias Gmachl from Loop.pH have created an immersive Chronarium Sleep Lab.
London-based designers Rachel Wingfeld and Mathias Gmachl are experts at creating unusual experiential installations. For The Chronarium Sleep Lab they worked with a sleep scientist, a sound artist and a meditation expert to create a silk-draped space filled with different sounds and visuals, as well as hammocks, in which to relax.
A soundtrack by composer Anna Meredith features soothing voices and ambient vibrations, which visitors experience with a spectrum of coloured lighting effects as they recline. The total effect is designed to be a sequence of physical experiences that induce a harmonious mood and reset circadian rhythms.
The overall aesthetic has a biotech feel as physical shapes reminiscent of the human body are brought together using light and sound technologies.
