Seemingly random circles of va ing sizes form a bubble-like ground and sport a striped infill of high- and lowsheen yarns to add dimension. Composed of polyester and solutiondyed nylon, Grandview is offered in seven colorways and is Greenguard® certified for low chemical emissions. Reader Service No. 220 Sina Pearson The stylish mid-centu aesthetic is captured in the Scandinavian Modern collection. As homage to Pearson’s Swedish heritage, it features three complementa patterns offered in a total of 32 colorways hearkening to the earthy palette of that era. Behind the pretty face, however, lies high performance. The solid, Eureka, is constructed of easy-to-clean polyurethane; Cut Circles and the tone-on-tone textured Villa are both woven of bleach-cleanable polyester and nylon fibers with Incase stain-, odor-, and microbial-resistant finish. Reader Service No. 221 Nature makes its way even into windowless treatment rooms through the wall- or ceilingmountable eScapeTM. The LED screen displays hours of unedited, high-definition nature scenes and sounds, ranging from waterfalls and wildlife to blue skies and sunsets. As biophilic studies and theories suggest, these simulated views can have a soothing and stress-reducing effect on patients. www.skyfacto .com Reader Service No. 222 Sky Facto Nemschoff Steps transforms institutional waiting areas into animated ones with its curvaceous, serpentine configurations. The modular segments―one straight and two wedge shapes―feature va ing-height backs to meet privacy or openness preferences, and to compose a creative undulating design. Integrated table options eliminate the need for additional furnishings, though complementing freestanding tables are also available. Reader Service No. 223 36 contract october 2011
