ClientMatsubara Urology Clinic

Dr. Matsubara is a urology surgeon specialist of the Davinci Robotic Surgery. His new clinic echoes this by offering a futuristic sci-fi like atmosphere. All surfaces of the space were finished in white, generating a pure and clean atmosphere. A tribute to hygiene acting as a three-dimensional canvas, on which functional, yet exquisite panels punctuate the monotony. The panels are used as chairs, counters, covering the heads for the privacy, door handles, showcase bases, or just as elements keeping the balance.
