Located in the Sydney suburb of Double Bay, SHELTER is a modern wellness centre that focuses on nourishing both mind and body. Designed by Australian studio Esoteriko, the interiors feature light wood and steel finishings softened by indoor plants and plentiful natural light. Where possible, screens are used instead of walls to offer privacy without compromising openness between the centre’s four areas; gym classes, saunas, ice baths and a juicery. Through its design, SHELTER acts as an embodiment of its philosophy; to encourage a contemporary, holistic and restorative approach to health and fitness.
As Herman Miller celebrate their centenary, Softer Volumes looks at some of their most recent collaborations; the newly updated Eames Turned Stool, the Luva Modular Sofa, and the Cyclades Tables. These pieces represent the company’s enduring spirit of creative endeavour, their dedication to innovative design, and the importance of both the brand’s history and its future.
