In today's fast-moving world everyone welcomes a place to relax and recharge their batteries. Wellness and body care are gaining importance, and not only among the rich and famous. A huge number of wellness facilities have opened in recent years; some are outstanding examples of superb interior design. Relax showcases the 32 hottest designs. It covers spas and thermal baths, massage, hair and beauty salons, health farms and gyms. Each project has been selected for its beauty and for the innovative concept behind its creation. In addition to works by well-known names such as Karim Rashid, Steven Holl and Jun Aoki, Relax includes interiors by promising young designers. All projects feature quality photography, in-depth essays, floor plans, project details and contact information. They are organised in four typological chapters, each of which concludes with an attractively designed yet unrealised project, illustrated with renderings.

Karim Rashid is an industrial designer whose clients include Prada, Nambe, Issey Miyake, Mikasa, Shiseido, Giorgio Armani, and Yahoo, among many others. With a career that began at age nineteen, Rashid is now the creator of more than two thousand designs, many of them award-winning. His commercial success has been mirrored by critical acclaim; his works are in the permanent collections of fourteen museums worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Montreal Museum of Decorative Arts. His designs are available at the Karim Rashid Shop at 137 West 19th Street in New York City.
