Nursing home "Shinjuen"


concept : dancing bubbles
It is a designated facility providing nursing care services for the elderly.
In the lounge area, colorful bubbles are dancing in the air above chairs and sofas colored in shades of green, which give image of green grass and soap bubbles floating in the park on sunny days. These bubbles are in the form of 45 mobiles consisting of 225 spheres in 15 colors creating gentle circular motion in the air.
