Allergy Medical, Sydney Double Bay

Allergy Medical in Sydney’s Double Bay is the first clinic of it’s kind in Australia, providing the most advanced and comprehensive allergy care available today. Designed by Hassell Studio, the interiors reflect the quality of service perfectly – a welcoming space that supports improved health and wellbeing through chemical free products.

Materials were carefully selected to reinforce the goals and services provided by Allergy Medical. mafi Larch Brushed White Oil floorboards were specified by Hassell due to the health benefits and chemical free properties. A mafi floor is 100% chemical free, containing no VOC’s or formaldehyde. mafi are proud partners of the National Asthma Council of Australia’s Sensitive Choice program.

Reducing exposure to toxins is imperative to creating healthier living and working conditions. Chemicals, smoke, dust, mould, pollen and dust mites are all triggers asthma and allergies and largely a result of poor indoor air quality. mafi all-natural products and processes work as a system to effectively reduce these harmful and annoying environmental triggers.

The mafi philosophy surrounds improving health and wellbeing through all natural timber flooring, which in turn supports a healthy indoor environment. Here at mafi, we believe that the best timber floors are completely natural. Therefore, we disassociate ourselves with plastic coatings, laquers, stains or polishes. Instead we use a natural oil finish which soaks into the wood and hardens it from within. The oil is made up of natural plant fats and oils as well as the oil soap that is used to clean and maintain a mafi floor.

mafi Larch Brushed White Oil planks were also used to clad the wall as a design feature at the clinic’s entrance.
