Inviting colour concept

A spacious entrance, minimalist design language, complemented by the stylish combination of floor coverings in concrete look, warm white and oak as well as accents in mint and rosé. Upon entering the Dr Aull practice, it immediately becomes clear: someone has thought about this and reinterpreted the concept of "practice". The result is a light-flooded, restrained and coherent concept that consistently separates public and internal areas - and shows visitors appreciation and warmth.

Competent partner

The interior design concept for the practice was developed in close consultation between the client and Christiane Düpmann, who works as an interior designer at NWD GmbH, a commercial and service company in Münster specialising in the planning and furnishing of dental practices. Dr Sondra Aull-Glusa's wish for a clean, reduced look was taken into account, as was the designer's recommendation to create an inviting ambience for the - often young - patients by using warm colours.

Excellent atmosphere

The jury of the ZWP Design Prize also found this concept to be a success, awarding Dr Aull's practice the title of "Germany's Most Beautiful Dental Practice" in 2021. Among other things, the jury stated that the practice proves that "minimalist design, function and an atmosphere that makes work enjoyable are not mutually exclusive.

Qualified implementation

The furniture and interior fittings are the responsibility of Kappler GmbH & Co. KG from Pfalzgrafenweiler is responsible for the furniture and interior fittings. The specialist company, which specialises in furnishing medical practices, not only ensures the highest quality of craftsmanship in the implementation. It is also very familiar with the hygiene requirements of the industry. This means that any requirements for the interior fittings are directly taken into account in the detailed planning and execution.

Decor quality and function

Dr Aull-Gluse and interior designer Düpmann opted for Pfleiderer wood-based materials in order to ensure that the design of Dr Aull's practice remains of the desired high quality. For the white shade, the choice fell on U11209 Royal White, which is used across all trades on furniture, work surfaces and wall panelling. This is where the Pfleiderer DST system shows one of its great strengths. This is because the colour is not only available in the same decor as Duropal XTreme and the Duropal composite elements that are also used. It can also be combined with the filigree SD Sandpearl structure, which makes an important contribution to the overall impression of the design as a noble matt surface. The same applies to the wood tone, which runs through the practice as a lively accent. On the X-ray cube, it is realised with real wood staves, while Pfleiderer's Lindberg oak decor with the fascinating XMSM XTreme Matt surface is used for furniture and interior fittings. XTreme Matt impresses with a surface of unprecedented colour transparency and depth - and a pleasantly warm, velvety soft feel. Although the matt, low-reflection surface looks particularly elegant, its texture is durable, resistant and easy to clean. The warm, "soft" surface invites you to touch it - and remains resistant to fingerprints or traces of grease.
