WONJIN is designed to differ from other cosmetic institutions with functional space articulation as “a Studio and Gallery for the Beauty Surgery” to communicate the human body with potential cosmetic surgery procedures. Famous Thai contemporary sculpture artists and photographer artists worked in close collaboration with doctors and designers to tell a story of beauty evidence through cosmetic surgery, titled: “Art, Beauty & Surgery”.

The design of the WONJIN environment is carefully innovated from the concept of ‘Symmetrical Balance’ from beauty research. In the early 1990s, Newsweek used Denzel Washington as their primary example of perfection for beauty according to symmetry. According to the article ‘The Biology of Beauty’ New Link. A research study describes ‘the Perfect Beauty’ can be seen in our face configuration if dividing it in half and two sides are identical. Symmetry is one’s face is what makes one attractive. This symmetrical framework led to the layout design, space identity (i.e. logo, symbols, fonts), as well as curated artworks on site.
