Multi-sensory room concepts by Aquamental Spa

Aquamental Spa has launched seven different, scalable room concepts using water, light and acoustics.
In the Columns concept (right), pressure is pumped into water-filled columns causing them to vibrate and make different tones. The columns have an in-built light so fluctuating water levels create a wave-shaped room pattern. Sensors pick up on movement in the room – the faster people move the quicker the column sequence becomes.

Other concepts include Circles, Deep Sea, Flux, Tours, Swing and Stonefly.

Designed in London, and already used by operators such as Ritz-Carlton, Popbands are soft stretchy hair ties that don’t leave a dent. They hold hair up tight – often a necessity in the spa or health club – but leave it kink-free for when customers take it down and leave the facility. They come in a variety of colours and packs, with or without different Swarovski beads, and can be retailed in spa shops or placed in locker rooms as a useful amenity. Head bands are also available.
