London’s first ‘wellbeing playground’ - dates for the diary
Belgravia’s Eccleston Yards will host a free, outdoor urban spa from 7-15 September.
Created by Bompas & Parr, Paradise Now will unveil the latest scientifically-proven wellness trends
A 30-minute visit will make guests feel as though they’ve just returned from a week-long holiday
This is a unique and pioneering experience that promises to supercharge visitors in 30 minutes. Paradise Now will be a free urban outdoor spa that will offer guests an engaging journey inspired by the very latest wellness trends.
Developed by multi-sensory visionaries Bompas & Parr, Paradise Now will bring to life wellness concepts such as biohacking, Nootropics, Rehydration technology, urban nature bathing and touchscreen chromo-therapy. The installation will feature:
• A monumental pink mist waterfall at the centre of Eccleston Yards’ courtyard enriched with natural, energising minerals and extracts of raspberry leaf, aloe vera, chamomile and citrus. Here, guests will bathe in the mist of this fountain of nature;
• Haptic dunes – an immersive meditation zone where guests can sit and absorb nutrients from the surrounding dunes of vitamin-infused, aromatherapy-scented pebbles coloured in Baker- Miller pink - a colour scientifically proven to relax and reduce anxiety;
• A perpetual sunset – a large-scale infrared light installation shaped like the sun, which will exude a warming glow. Infrared light therapy is used to boost endorphins and metabolism, relieve depression and stimulate vitamin D production. The sunset will be surrounded by screens streaming live sunsets from stunning locations across the world;
• Electrolyte Aqua bar – which will feature water collection columns infused with water properties from the seven continents, where various geological layers will collect and transform London’s rainwater into nutrient-rich filtered water. The bar will also offer a selection of designer waters, water infusions and water-based cocktails served by Water Sommeliers who will host tastings.
Well-being is at the core of Eccleston Yard’s philosophy with live, work and play environments and brands that bring together and energise visitors, workers and residents. Already home to brands including Barry’s, Re:Mind, SMUK, Tailor Made, 50M and Jones Family Kitchen, Eccleston Yards is London’s latest destination for food, fashion, retail and co-working.
