The “Wellery” at Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store
Saks Fifth Avenue, 611 5th Ave, New York. Open through Oct. 31
The renovation of the department store in its flagship location created a vacant floor: Associates decided, instead of letting the floor to sit empty – to create a temporary space dedicated to health and wellness: “The Wellery”. Clients can participate in a “prison-style boot camp” – group fitness classes taught by ex-convicts, have a non-toxic vegan friendly manicure accompanied by guided medication, drink exotic juices or experience the salt therapy booth. The company plans on dismantling the space later this year but promises to incorporate elements in the flagship store, for example – a permanent juice bar in the fifth floor.
