designers rate Anita Rossen Senior Interior Designer ZGF Architects LLP Seattle Mary Bledsoe, IIDA, LEED AP, Principal lauckgroup Austin, Texas Anita Rossen ZGF Architects 1. Nurture by Steelcase, Mineral Recliner nurture.steelcase.com Reader Service No. 213 This chair has a compact footprint that is especially good for tight patient care spaces. Smooth mechanisms to recline and flip down the side arms provide a comfortable experience for patients and less strain for staff. A steel frame is offered for lasting durability. 2. Sittris, Sky Stool www.sittris.com Reader Service No. 214 These examination stools are easy to clean, and stain resistant with an anti-bacterial silicone seat cover to prevent the spread of threatening pathogens in healthcare environments. 3. Brandrud, Revive Guest Center www.brandrud.com Reader Service No. 215 This convertible sofa is elegant, clean, and provides comfort and convenience for patients’ guests. It pulls out to a bed with minimal mechanisms. We like the range of features, including storage drawers, an attached reading lamp, and side tablet arms. healthcare seating Contract asks two designers to name and explain their preferred products 1. Mary Bledsoe, IIDA, LEED AP lauckgroup 4. Nemschoff, Iris www.nemschoff.com Reader Service No. 216 I love the ’50s retro look of this chair. It has the necessary elements of a sturdy wood arm and an elevated base but does not look like a typical healthcare product. I like the way the curved back wraps around the occupant; that sense of comfort is key. 2. 4. 5. 5. Herman Miller, Mirra www.hermanmiller.com Reader Service No. 217 Mirra has become my favorite patient area guest chair! It is highly ergonomic, light enough to move easily, but doesn’t shift under patients. It’s scrubbable, parts are easily retrofitted, and the price point makes it easy to specify for a variety of budgets. It’s a smart, attractive utility chair for clinical settings. 6. Carolina Business Furniture, Kruz carolinabusinessfurniture.com Reader Service No. 216 For heavy-use areas I like the simplicity of this chair. Kruz provides a strong metal framework without a chunky metal leg. The bent plywood detailing is simple, fresh, and unusual for healthcare. It looks easy and playful without appearing juvenile. 3. 6.
