App-Based Brooklyn Pharmacy Encourages Relaxation With Aqua Interiors
New York City's Medly Pharmacy, an online prescription service, created a calming turquoise interior to foster pleasant waiting-room experiences
Waiting rooms are not well known for their aesthetically-pleasing atmosphere. That’s why Medly Pharmacy, a Brooklyn-based pharmacy app providing easy online ordering for prescription medications, built its brick-and-mortar location with designs intended to please and calm customers.
Featuring a minimal white and soft-aqua color scheme, the waiting room contains benches in vinyl leather and chrome, delicate white shelving and pendant lamps, graphic blue-and-white floor tiles and a buffed cement reception desk that evokes sandy, ocean-worn surfaces.
The overall ambiance of the interior is light, elegant and slightly retro, and was made in collaboration with design studio Sergio Mannino, according to Dezeen architecture and design magazine. Medly’s attempt to create an enjoyable environment for its customers serves as an example of progressive retail design, more important than ever in an industry that struggles to compete with online services, and yet also marks the enduring importance of real-life locations.
