The designers behind Berlin’s most notoriously exclusive and downright hardcore nightclub, Berghain, have lent their hand to a slightly different industry: dentistry. Rather than dread your next dental check-up, Studio Karhard wanted to imbue the excitement and stimulation of a night out with a visit to The Urban Dentist in central Berlin.

Rather than approach the design of the 360sqm interior through the paradigm of a surgery or medical practice, the designers applied the layout of a bar or concept store. Colour and texture replaced the sterile white surfaces often associated with dental anxiety. Exposed concrete, mirrored surfaces, glass panels and fun pink sofas stand in their place. An ambient system of backlighting changes colour constantly, a dynamic element that helps create a calming mood and atmosphere.

Treatment rooms feature your traditional and necessary tools and dental chairs, tempered by custom powder pink linoleum furniture and brass framing. The reception desk is a hunk of colourful terrazzo, black stone studded with green and golden marble. A white version is used in the treatment rooms. The bathrooms have a definite club-y feel, with walls lined with shiny black tessellating tiles. Almost everything was custom-built by local designers using sustainable materials.

Just as hopeful partygoers line up for a wild night at the Berghain, we wouldn’t be surprised if this dentist is impossible to get an appointment at in no time. Did teeth cleaning just go to the top of everyone’s Berlin tourist hit list?Click To Read Entire Post
