Program Info

The wellness industry is undergoing a $1.5 trillion boom, fuelled by consumers prioritising their health and wellbeing and looking for better sleep, better nutrition, better fitness, better appearance and better mindfulness. Designing for wellness interiors involves understanding how people want to feel, physically and psychologically, and the paradox of creating a private, personal space that will serve the public.

In this highly respected speaker program presented by Artichoke magazine, we hear from designers who have created wellness spaces across Australia, from a bathhouse and a salon for skin health to a gym and sauna space.
