Oikoa, a new massage boutique in Zwolle (in the east of the Netherlands), has opened its doors. Concrete designed the interior and the graphic identity, and the name Oikoa is all about inner self and wellbeing.
Oikoa, the Finnish word for ‘smooth correction, provides an introverted realm of calm. A place that invites you to leave the outer world behind, and to recharge in a natural and harmonious environment.
The massage boutique is designed as a serene space where guests can focus on themselves. This was achieved by turning the existing extroverted glass cube inside out and placing the organic-shaped central space at the heart of the building, with the treatment rooms situated on the perimeter.
Guests enter directly into the core of the boutique; a warm introspective space lined with multiple curved walls, finished in warm oak laths. The curved walls create intimate seating areas, with softly curved benches upholstered in moss green velvet. These are the perfect spots to wait in full comfort and prepare for treatment.
