Studio KONTOU creates spatial experiences and sensorial interiors to enhance well-being and mindfulness in particular.
KONTOU creates healthy interiors in offices, health care institutions and hospitality environments. As well in specific installations and rooms to alter mindfulness and stress reduction.
Central to KONTOU’s work is the holistic integration of mindful design, natural elements and art; all to stimulate the senses. With a multi-disciplinary network, KONTOU puts together the best team for each project, to be able to create qualitative experiences and interiors. By tailoring spatial experiences to the specific needs of users of a space, they can be brought into any desired state of mind.
KONTOU develops new innovative concepts to enhance well-being through spatial design while integrating science, psychology and art.
Research as base
Biophilic design and related research serve as a steady platform for KONTOU. Taking nature as the greatest example and source of inspiration, its restorative and relaxing qualities are being translated in holistic environments. To benefit the physical and
mental state of its beholders and elating sensory awareness into everyday life.
Extensive research in various fields as introspection, serenity and mindful interconnection, led to launching the very first multi sensorial experience “Contemplation Spaces” during Dutch Design Week 2017. Followed by research project The Design of Spatial Well-being to investigate methods and developments to create healthy environments, in a broader perspective.
Justine Kontou, educated as a commercial economist with degrees in trend forecasting & concept development, is specialised in art and design. Her years as curator and projectmanager a.o. for city marketing agency Eindhoven365 and the organisation of Dutch Design Week, led to Justine combining these elements with the purpose of affecting wellbeing.
Justine is about strategy without losing the imperative creativity and finesse to visualise and materialise her beliefs. Her purpose is to create meaningful, healthy environments that are soothing and empathetic to its users. This holistic approach in optimising the whole spatial experience to enhance well-being, is still very new and innovative. By nurturing her infinite curiosity for the sake of new insights and additional experts to work with, she keeps ahead of social developments.
