Situated in the exciting new Nine Elms developement, Linnaean is a new wellness salon and cafe concept designed by MBDS. 

Named after the Swedish botanist, Carl Linnaeus - the father of modern taxonomy, Linnaean embodies the pioneering spirit of Linnaeus, breathing new life into the luxury salon and beauty treatment scene. Through introducing a casual dining concept, visitors are encouraged to relax and luxuriate in the comfort of Linnaean, extending their stay and reaping the benefits of the relaxing ambience.

Split across two floors, Linnaean offers a hair salon, treatment rooms, manicure and pedicure stations, retail area and a standalone café. Utilising clean lines with a fresh colour palette of greens and soft coral tones, the whole space feels welcoming, bright and enriching. Limed timber, rattan and woven leather bring a tactile element to the design whilst vibrant ceramic tiles and terrazzo stone ensure the look is refreshing and contemporary. Soft upholstery, featuring botanic motifs, nod to Linnaean’s distinctive heritage and contemporary artwork by female artists complete the look.
