A 2017 Syracuse University graduate, Alexis Wilson was interested in ways to help people combat their fear of the dentist. She got intrigued by “forest bathing,” a concept—especially popular in Japan—“where you’re just in the forest, absorbing the atmosphere,” Wilson told Incisal Edge. “I had the idea to create a nature-inspired interior but add some personality as well.” Her design for RiNo Dental, shown above, earned the 2019 Design of the Future grand prize in the Incisal Edge Design Competition.
