Wellness designer Clodagh to speak at GWS

Multi-disciplinary designer Clodagh, whose recent projects include the Six Senses Douro Valley and the reopened Six Senses Kaplankaya, will share her vision for truly integrated wellness design with conference delegates at the Global Wellness Summit in Italy this October.

Clodagh, head of New York-based interior design firm Clodagh Design, will take the stage at the 2018 conference to share her belief that wellness is a crucial requirement in design that makes a positive impact on our collective health and happiness. In a keynote entitled “Wellness By Design…from the Cradle to the Departure Lounge,” Clodagh will explore the importance of creating environments that put human wellness front and centre.

“Clodagh infuses everything she does with wellness – not only the breathtaking environments she creates – but every aspect of her life is approached through the lens of imagining how she can create physical and emotional joy,” said Susie Ellis, chair and CEO of the Global Wellness Summit. “As new movements like wellness architecture take hold, I’ve often found myself thinking that the design world is finally catching up with Clodagh’s original vision, and yet she continues to raise the bar with her one-of-a-kind spaces.”

Clodagh is considered a vanguard of wellness design, as evidenced by her keen interest in – and use of – approaches like feng shui, biophilia (the healing power of nature), chromatherapy, wabi sabi and aromatherapy. Clodagh advocates for sustainable and eco-conscious design principles, using natural materials to enrich projects with warmth and beauty.

“Design is emotional, and great design is an experience,” she explained. “We make the invisible visible.”

Clodagh’s third book, Life-Enhancing Design, focuses on the value of – and need for – designs that appeal to every sense.

“Clodagh transforms spaces, not just visually, but also their very energy, incorporating spiritual, emotional and wellness aspects into every space,” said Anna Bjurstam, vice president of spa and wellness for Six Senses. “Clodagh’s designs played a key role in the success of Six Senses Douro Valley and she has once again performed her trademark magic on the Six Senses Kaplankaya in Bodrum, Turkey.”

“Wellness is a holistic pursuit and the spaces where we dwell, work, eat and shop all contribute to creating a lifetime of overall wellbeing,” said Clodagh. “My goal is to have everyone walk away from one of our projects with a huge smile on their faces. I want to make people feel good by creating spaces that imbue both visual and emotional hugs.”

Clodagh’s work has garnered numerous accolades and awards, including induction into the Interior Design Hall of Fame and Hospitality Design Platinum Circle, and being named among the Top 100 Designers in the World by Architectural Digest.

The 12th-annual Summit will focus on the current business landscape and future trends for the ten diverse segments that make up the nearly $4 trillion global wellness economy, including the $US134bn wellness lifestyle real estate sector.
