Emirates Hospital Jumeirah

Dubai, UAE

Emirates Hospital Jumeirah is home to some of the world’s leading medical professionals and features high-quality medical services with state-of-the-art technology. Preciosa was approached with a task to help make the hospital lobby more inviting, especially to children. The interior design proposal was done by Samuel Creations/SCDESIGN+, Dubai while the design execution was handled by Dubai-based MASSA Design.

It was important to create an impressive space that did not feel like a hospital. The two large installations we designed were both inspired by the universe--the cosmos and clouds to be exact. One of the biggest challenges with this project was the fact that the installations are suspended from a skylight. Designers had to think carefully about the weight and the number of components, as well as how to safely install and secure them.

Like a trail of clouds descending from the sky, one of Preciosa’s installations uses polished brass aluminium for a warm reflective base, combined with crystal trimmings. The second design is reminiscent of a miniature galaxy formed from polished stainless steel, crystal trimmings and hand-blown frosted crystal spheres.
