Meeting rooms in Sriracha are often uniform and take no creative liberties. But not ours. A contemporary boat-shaped oasis, The Cruise is the name given to the versatile meeting space at S. Sriracha Hotel and Residence. Just a short walk from our sriracha hotel, the design of our unique multi-purpose meeting venue in Sriracha, The Cruise, pulls inspiration from the Japanese concept of ‘Shinrin Yoku’ for its interior design. Its walls are lined with sleek and minimalist wooden panels, and are intended to mimic trees you’d find in the Japanese woods. Read on further to learn more about the refreshing Japanese concept of ‘Shinrin Yoku’.
What is Shinrin Yoku?
The Japanese term ‘Shinrin Yoku’ translates to mean ‘forest bath’ in English. It is a concept that emerged in Japan in the 1980s, encouraging people to take in the forest’s atmosphere as a physiological and psychological practice — otherwise known as ecotherapy. There are many benefits to adopting forest bathing as a mindfulness exercise and wellness trend. In fact, it is not a new occurrence for a culture to embrace nature and recognize its importance to human health. However, there were two main reasons that the Japanese advocated for the implementation of this practice.
The second reason for the advocacy of ‘Shinrin Yoku’ is to nurture connection with nature among the Japanese population and ignite a sense of protection over the country’s forests. With the modernization that came in 1980s, urbanization also occurred. By fostering a love for being in nature among its population, Japan was able to prevent the expansion of cities into more tree-dense areas and create a culture of respect and need for preservation for their forests.
The first reason is that the Japanese believed creating time in the day where one would temporarily disconnect with technology would help alleviate society’s burnout with the tech boom that occurred during this period. Japan is known for being a country that values hard work and having an extremely dedicated work ethic, so they delved into the modern advancements full force with how it increased the efficiency of their workplaces. While producing amazing results for their businesses, it did create a new form of stress within their population that they had to counteract so they embraced this form of ecotherapy and connecting with nature.
The Benefit of Our Shinrin Yoku-Inspired Design in The Cruise
Our design choice is intentional. By making the walls of The Cruise emanate the feeling of being surrounded by trees, S. Sriracha Hotel hoped its meeting participants would subconsciously focus on their breathing and shift into a state of mindfulness while they spent time in our space. Engaging in business and brainstorming innovative ideas takes a heavy toll on the mind. By creating an environment that encourages mental and physiological ease, we hoped it would soothe the stress and anxiety of our busy clients. With their tensions lowered, they could relax and adopt a positive attitude, which boosts creativity and makes for a productive gathering and meeting of the minds.
