The interiors of ZAAZ Wellness & Beauty by VSHD Design are inspired by Moroccan and Berber heritage
ZAAZ Wellness & Beauty is a spa located in Dubai’s Jumeirah neighbourhood designed by interior design firm VSHD Design Dubai. Set across two floors, its interiors are reflective of Moroccan and Berber heritage combined with minimalistic modern design elements.
A homegrown brand with a mission to offer beauty and wellness treatments from Morocco in a harmonious and calming environment, ZAAZ uses top-of-the-line beauty products and organic skin oils and creams sourced from Morocco. Traditional Moroccan and Berber architectural and design elements can be found throughout the spa, dressing each space in a look inherent to Moroccan culture and history, with a particular focus on elements from southern Morocco.
The design of ZAAZ, which took 12 months to complete, required the sourcing of specific material, custom-design elements, and heritage items, including Tadelakt, a waterproof plaster made in Morocco for the hammam on the second floor; and specially made Zellij tiles, which can be found throughout the spa offering an authentic experience of a spa in Morocco. A distinct feature of ZAAZ is its simplicity. The design of the spa provides a taste of Morocco in a discreet manner without an uproar of embellishment and instead focuses on the beauty of the materials, the lighting, lines, and proportions inherent in each spa. The spa upholds Morocco’s aesthetic traditions and heritage as well as its renowned beauty rituals through a minimalistic design rich in materials that offers a sense of peace, serenity, and escape.
