The video domes enhance relaxation at spas LIVINGLOBE


Domes offering 360-degree video projec- tion can bring a new level of relaxation to spas, according to a German developer. Munich-based LivinGlobe – which


installed of two of its Vidarium wellness domes in the OCT Hot Springs Waterpark in China this January – says tranquil films can be projected on the dome’s entire ceiling. One Vidarium houses a hot shale bath, while another features a pool for water treatments. However, other spas could also use the Vidarium as a chillout lounge or even a massage room. Harald Singer, owner and creative direc-


tor at LivinGlobe, says visitors can view one of eight soothing nature films from a sitting or face up position, immersing themselves in the moving images of the projected worlds. One film shows the mountains in Swiss Alps (pictured) while another is an underwater fantasy film shot in Borneo, Malaysia by a diver surrounded by fish. The aim is to create a new environment


where relaxation can be achieved with eyes open rather than closed. And Singer bills the Vidarium as a “brand new attrac- tion for existing or new spas” that can help engage, awe and retain customers.

US film director Louis Schwartzberg is the curator of Moving Art, a collection of 2D and 3D moving images for digital screens. The company has teamed up with


Organic Spa Magazine to create a series of visual meditation films using the Mov- ing Art work set to a relaxing soundtrack. This immersive Visual Meditation Room


concept has already been tested at the Miraval resort and spa in Arizona, US, leading to a proposed permanent room installation. Installations at other high-end hospitality venues are expected soon.


The Visual Mediation Room concept


uses time-lapse cinematography of natural images projected on ceiling-to-floor screens that present viewers with a new way to look at the world that surrounds them. There are eight films, capturing scenarios such as the rolling waves of the ocean, unfurling flowers and untouched forests, which can be used to create moods according to the use of space. Moving Art is also developing an


interface to let spa guests choose the mood of their treatment room.
