Maison Lutétia Dubai, UAE

Located in Dubai Festival City, Maison Lutétia Dubai has opened their beauty clinic offering a variety of non-invasive treatments for skin and hair.

dpa worked closely with KKD to develop the lighting concept for both the landscape and the clinic interiors.

A sense of opulence is inherent within the design. The narrative suggests calm elegance and the use of high specification materials, wood leather and natural stone, all lend themselves well to this aesthetic. Lutétia has a private underground car park, so privacy and discretion were always paramount within the design.

The use of concealed illumination whenever possible helps to define the high level of detail given to each area.

Lighting to the waiting areas for both male and female lends an air of calm within the dynamic DFC environment. Corridor spaces contain concealed and integrated lighting within grey leather clad walls.

Treatment and waiting/consultation rooms exist side by side and differ in character, an incredible challenge for lighting within such defined spaces.

Le Barbier & Le Salon offer unparalleled levels of luxury and service within the personal grooming market. Individual stations with integrated lighting to mirrors helps to main the high levels of privacy required.

Le Barbier follows a traditional masculine material palette of dark metal, stone and glass while Le Salon counters with rich hues of gold panelling and pastel pink leather walls.

The VIP area follows through on this theme, dark blue leather clad walls offset against white natural stone and rich metallic accents. Lighting enhances the sense of opulence and quality through high levels of integration and detailing.

The use of sophisticated control systems for each area further adds to the feeling of quality through selective use of dimming and scene set technology.
