Interior design – “In a world that’s more and more virtual, interiors become identities.” Even when you make yourself comfortable on a chair – with your mouth wide open and a doctor checking on your molar teeth’s health. Dutch studio i29 has designed the interiors of Amsterdam’s new dental clinic of the Dentista chain as well as the company’s brand identity.

Dentista aims to be a high-end practice for everybody serious about their health and beauty. “Our design strategy was to bring together a clean fresh medical environment and a health-inducing wellness experience so patients feel comfortable and at ease.”
The studio created “a unified and clear tone of voice for the Amsterdam clinic.” Sharp lines and clean white practically and intuitively refer to medical professionalism. A central garden and roof lights radiate natural light through the whole practice, nourishing plants and people alike.
While lush greenery separates waiting clients from the busy street outside, the sharp-angled green zone and reception desk separate the waiting area from the treatment rooms. In the heart of the treatment area, a hidden courtyard garden provides views of nature and daylight in the treatment rooms.
Laying in the dentist chair, large round roof light offers views of the sky. Special rooms in the back accommodate state-of-the-art technology, including the X-ray sterilization room. The practice is big enough to be fully equipped with the latest technology but still personal with eight treatment rooms.
i29 is an award-winning design office for interior and architecture projects. “We deliver progressive work that stands out for its simplicity. In a digitizing world, we shape the physical experiences around us; clear, effective, surprising.”
To ensure full commitment and the best quality work of all dentists and specialists, Dentista is organized as a cooperative to secure full involvement with the patients and the practice.
