The Hundred Wellness Space
The Hundred Wellness Centre is tucked inside a peaceful villa in the heart of Jumeirah in Dubai. Everything little design and decor detail has been thought out at The Hundred space – this is not your average Pilates studio. Here at The Hundred, we pride ourselves on celebrating local talents from the UAE and curating a space that will help our clients feel at home – and at peace. Since we offer so much more than pilates (including a cafe, homeopathy, functional training and more) it was important that our space reflect The Hundred Wellness Centre lifestyle.
Each and every piece of art at The Hundred Wellness Centre has a story behind it, here are the tales of some of our favourite pieces dotted around the space and local talents who want to see their work at The Hundred.
We love the solid oak chairs placed around our giant open-plan seating area at the juice bar and cafe. The curved backrests and arm support means that you will be snug as a bug in a rug whilst you enjoy your cold-pressed juice or speciality coffee.
Guests to The Hundred Wellness Center can be transported to their childhood whilst they wait for their Pilates class or functional training session. The Spun chairs by the Thomas Heatherwick studio in our waiting area never cease to put a smile on clients’ faces. The Hundred founder, Asma, first saw these chairs at London’s V&A museum in 2012 and it was love at first sight. Of course it’s not all fun and games – a spin in these chairs will also challenge your core, and you have to trust the design that you won’t fall off. Plus, the Spun chair provides the circle metaphor that we so love here at The Hundred – because wellness is a continuous circle, it’s in your food, sleep, exercise, stress levels – you can’t succeed in just one element, you have to complete your circle.
Look up at The Hundred Wellness Center reception and you will see our space is dotted with these beautiful art pieces by Ingo Maurer – a.k.a. ‘The Poet of Light’ and one of the most iconic artists and designers working today. These oversized light bulbs feature handmade butterflies and dragonflies and bring a sense of nature, beauty and enchantment to the space.
Emirati artist Zeinab Al Hashemi created this beautiful rug as part of her San’am series. The rug is crafted from camel leather and filled with sand, bringing our region’s most iconic elements inside our space at The Hundred Wellness Center. Keep a look out for Zeinab’s piece in our waiting area.
Emirati graphic designer and illustrator Khalid Mezaina created this beautiful mascot for The Hundred. We nicknamed her ‘Pepper’ and you can find her on our website’s footer showing off her ‘Rolling Like A Ball’ Pilates moves.
