Being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes us feel better emotionally, it contributes to our physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. It may even reduce mortality, according to scientists such as public health researchers Stamatakis and Mitchell. (University of Minnesota). 21st century life is very stressful and it's not going to get any easier.About Us
” I loved Susan’s work as soon as I saw it. I was delighted to employ her to do some work for our new hotel, office and resturant. And it’s turned out fab – a real stunning feature. Susan has had to work in a chaotic environment whilst we build the rest of the project around her! She has had to develop her ideas without a lot of support, working independently, which she has done extremelly well. We are delighted with the results.”– Robert Love / MD of Crowdfunder.co.uk
I am Susan Clements-Loftus and I am an interior designer. I have designed this immersive, sensory, well-being space so that people can take time out, away from the stresses of life, to reconnect with nature, to feel rested and restored. The ZenCube, inspired by Japanese Tea Houses is a glass room which, located in beautiful settings has panoramic views.
It can also be installed internally with projected choices of footage and sounds of nature. Inside The ZenCube are recliners, an aromatherapy diffuser of essential oils, herbal teas and soft natural fibre throws. All five senses are nurtured. The ZenCube is sustainably designed, solar powered and has one way glass for total privacy. Guests will enjoy a lovely relaxing experience whatever the weather. Patients suffering from mental illness or undergoing treatment for cancer would be able to spend time in The ZenCube to help counteract the horrible effects of their illnesses.
