    Beijing Emo Aesthetic Medicine Clinic is located in the CBD of Beijing, John Li Studio. Inheriting the western design style and eastern poetic feelings and with a design style more suitable for the current Chinese life style, its founder John Li explore the traditional and modern, external and connotation, shape and mood, to create a secluded place in the bustling lights for Emo.

    “Her robe is a cloud, her face a flower; Her balcony, glimmering with the bright spring dew.” The sight of the brilliant clouds reminds me of the gorgeous clothes; and the gorgeous peonies, the radiant appearance. Li Bai, a great poet in the Tang Dynasty, used clouds as a metaphor for clothes and flowers as a metaphor for people to describe the rich and graceful manner of the magnificent Concubine Yang . Designers combined this poem with modern aesthetic thoughts to create the natural beauty of comfort: With clouds, flowers, water, art, nature, contemporary.

    To enter the clinic, you need to pass through a long corridor. The shape of the half-arch gives the space classical connotation, and the sequence of the shape has a sense of ritual and profound mystery. It brings the guests to a remote and quiet space, as if they are entering a corridor of time, which contains the tolerance and openness of the etiquette world.

    When entering the hall, the circular reception desk and the corresponding ring led screen above form partial occlusion, preventing people that come in from having a sweeping view, creating a euphemistic and implicit space mood. The circular reception desk is responsible for functions like reception, triage and cash register, and leads guests to different areas such as waiting, diagnosis and treatment area and traditional Chinese Medicine Department.
