DESIGNERS SELECT Healthcare Designers name favorite new products for healthcare settings Amy Mays, IIDA Design Principal HDR Architecture New York Pablo: Cielo Joel Berman Glass Studios: Centro Architex: The Codes: Man vs. Nature Reader Service No. 210 Reader Service No. 211 Reader Service No. 212 “I saw this fixture while at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) this year and thought it has something different to offer. It is a dimmable, flat-panel LED fixture with great accent color options. It works well solo or clustered together to create a more powerful statement.” “This new addition to the Studio collection provides a beautifully-scaled pattern with a great range of colors—all with a modern, graphic quality to them. It is a nice, timeless pattern that could be used in a wide range of settings. Well done.” “I love this cohesive group of patterns. The largescale ones are simply stated and bold. We are always looking for patterns that have a larger repeat and can be a special addition to a space. The color palette is elegant and sophisticated.” Design Principal, Architecture Cannon Design Chicago DIRTT: DIRTT Walls Nurture by Steelcase: Neighbor IOA Healthcare Furniture: Oliver Collection Reader Service No. 213 Randy Guillot, AIA Reader Service No. 214 Reader Service No. 215 “DIRTT brings its design sensibilities to bear on all of its products. Highly customizable and functional, these healthcare headwall and demising wall solutions leave a lot of room for creative expression.” “This collection of lounge seating is soft, modern, and comfortable. It doesn't overwhelm the interior architecture.” “The Oliver Collection, designed by Tara Rae Hill, takes a really beautiful, modern approach to lobby seating and tables. Its low-rise design is great for maintaining views through spaces.” Senior Vice President, Director of SE Asia, Healthcare Group HKS Dallas 88 Lamin-Art: Metal-Art Clarus Glass Boards: Surround American Standard: ICS System Reader Service No. 216 Angela Lee, AIA Reader Service No. 217 Reader Service No. 218 “Lamin-Art’s new metal art is a good product for healthcare. It is easy to clean and maintain, but also adds pattern and texture to the design of a space. This product is suitable for elevator cab interiors or wall paneling, and can be treated like any other high-pressure laminate.” “Surround is a beautifully designed white board with an architectural look to it, and appears to float away from the wall. Since all of the brackets are hidden, it has a very elegant design. Dry-erase markers will not ghost on it, and it is easy to maintain.” “This hand-washing sink has a hands-free faucet for easy access and cleaning. The shape of the sink—which is simple yet classic—is deep enough to minimize splashing and aid with washing and disinfection. The overflow has a seal so that water does not pool and harbor infection.” OCTOBER 2013
