The internal space is warm and welcoming, essential and rigorous. The exterior, wrapped by vertical elements in natural wood, conveys the sensation of being immersed in nature: hence the name, referencing the Japanese branch of natural medicine known as shinrin-yoku, of “forest bathing.”
The Yoku SH mini-spa by Effe (designed by Marco Williams Fagioli) is a solution that combines sauna, Turkish bath and shower, generating surprising effects of wellbeing. The distinctive feature of the system is the presence of large smoked glass windows, set back from the front; in the Yoku S/SH version, the façade becomes a large open “bookcase” that helps to insert the spa into its surroundings, while boosting the level of internal privacy. There is also the D/SH version with a wooden door on the sauna side, or the G/SH with a glass door on both sides (sauna and hammam).
