Lighting the Way
BULB MERGES OLD LOOK WITH NEW TECHNOLOGY AND EFFICIENCY/ AN IDEA GOLD winner and recipient of the ﬁrst-
ever IDEA Sustainability Award, Panasonic’s LED Clear Bulb is the ﬁrst to recreate the mood, quality and look of an incandescent bulb while offering a rated lifespan of 40,000 hours. The LED light source resembles a ﬁlament that effectively disperses light in all directions and since it has the same dimensions as an incandescent, it can be used with most standard light ﬁxtures.
THIS CHAIR IS LIGHT AS AIR/ INSPIRED BY A British wooden bomber airplane,
the IDEA Silver winning 1.3 Chair is constructed from compressed balsa wood (a fast-growing and underused sustainable source of wood) and lime wood, with a hardwood veneer for structural stability. This modest, practical and beautiful everyday chair reinterprets artisan craft techniques to achieve alternative industrial production methods.
COMFORTABLE HOSPITAL ACCOMMODATIONS FOR FAMILIES/ RECOGNIZING THE IMPORTANCE of family and friends in positive patient
outcomes, the sleepToo™ is a virtual family room for hospital rooms. The IDEA Gold winner is a revolutionary, fully-renewable seating unit with an integrated height-adjustable table and a three-seat sofa that transforms in a chair with ottoman or a twin-sized bed. It enables a patient’s family to stay comfortably during the day, overnight, or for weeks on end. And it does all that in as little as 18 square feet.
