DIY SPA
I Love my Wellness

DIY SPA acronym for “Do It Yourself” is a Wellness Concept developed as part of the “I Love my Wellness” exhibition, organised by Wellness Design, during the “Rimini Wellness 2010” trade fair.

A MULTIMEDIA SPA where to live……….freedom of spirit, freedom of thought, freedom of choice, freedom of movement……….movement of the body, movement of the mind……….to breathe, to escape, to find again, to know, to participate, to communicate, to live………. “Do It Yourself”……….to be oneself, to feel unique, to feel eternally……….young.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Alessandro Adriano Tinucci

In a wellness world where we are about to witness the stereotyping of the SPA and Beauty Farm model, the COCOON concept proposes an evolution of the same, in terms of language and space. The future customer (but not too much) of the SPA and Beauty Farm of tomorrow is the young person who lives surrounded by multimedia, technology and computerisation. Studio corcione tinucci architects proposes a concept that allows SPAs and Beauty Farms to dialogue with young people through the same language, that of the future. Wellness characterised by high technology and multimedia, not invasive methods, appropriately modulated and used to create heavenly settings and atmospheres. Young people today often want to feel free, without canons and impositions. COCOON wants to dialogue with them on the field of inner and expressive freedom, freeing them from the canonical impositions of a wellness “led” by the hand. A SPA or Beauty Farm where people are no longer spectators accompanied along a common sensory path, but individual protagonists and directors of their own wellbeing, where water is still an important element, but no longer fundamental. Where the important thing is to achieve one’s own state of well-being. COCOON is a three-dimensional multi-sensory element (chromotherapy, music therapy, aromatherapy), whose aim is to achieve one’s own wellbeing, to be shared only with oneself, but above all to be achieved arbitrarily. The possibility of choosing one’s favourite music, one’s favourite aroma, one’s favourite colour, through a simple remote control, allows one to live an intimate sensorial experience and thus achieve one’s own well-being. The LED lighting technology in RGB system allows you to select 256 colours. The small dimensions (diameter 120 cm, maximum height 180 cm) allow COCOON to be placed in small spaces, as long as there is enough room for one person to lie underneath COCOON. The object is made of an internal structure with an iron frame and upholstery in thermoplastic material. The concept is completed by the “DIY” multi-comfort seat, made up of 2 elements. The interior is made of polyurethane foam with the insertion of a steel metal structure prepared for the external application of chromed details. Upholstered in coated fabric in various colours. The connecting element between the two components consists of an oring ring.
