Healthcare environments textiles
Pallas Textiles has partnered with the designer Laura Guido Clark to create its most recent collection, Entwined. This collection contributes to the quality of healthcare environments by creating an air of comfort and solace for those who need it most: patients and family members. Its simple lines form patterns, delicate shapes, and plays on light and shadow. Adding to its design are patterns that imitate those found in nature, including leafy trellises, delicate webs, and anemones. These qualities-combined with its durability to withstand the intensity of healthcare environments-make Entwined a solution for any healthcare facility looking to create a welcoming and healing sanctuary for years to come.
With an extensive offering of design choices, National Office Furniture's WaveWorks presents many combinations of desks, storage, tables, reception, and much more. WaveWorks reception desks meet ADA guidelines to welcome all visitors with comfort and convenience. WaveWorks features National's environmentally friendly, UV finish, IntegraClear, and is certified SCS Indoor Advantage and level 2, which can contribute towards earning LEED points.
Recessed lighting designs
recesso lights introduces its new decorative glass and resin solutions that transform dull hallways, coldly lit waiting rooms, outdated recessed lights, and non-decorative LED or compact fluorescent lights into cheerful and decorative statements. The company uses a patent-pending hanging system and a series of artist-blown glass, hand-slumped glass, inlaid resin, and hand-painted resin shades. Engineered to conform to recessed lights of all sizes (8″ - 4″), recesso employs a locking ring and decorative trim system. Installation can be done in three steps without an electrician and it even works with drop ceiling tiles often used in healthcare facilities.
Entrance system solutions
Where textile-based entrance flooring is required, Forbo Flooring Systems offer Coral, a versatile range of “clean off” entrance system products, each performing a specific cleaning function. Each Coral range has been designed with complementary colors so that they can be integrated into any design scheme.
Flooring color selection
Roppe Corporation has launched a color palette of 70 standard colors available in rubber tile, rubber stair treads and type TS, TP, and TV wall base. Updated Fiesta and SafeTcork Vinyl lines and a more subtle marble effect combine to offer designers 234 colorways that work interchangeably within the color lines to complement each other. The palette consists of many of the forecasted colors expected to impact commercial interior segments.
The Simple Sleeper by Spec Furniture is a fresh approach to the standard sleeper. An innovative back design, cleanability, zero pinch points, mobility, and no exposed moving parts are incorporated into the design. The Simple Sleeper is a contemporary light scale design that ensures ease of use.
Integrated site furniture
Landscape Forms' new Metro40 collection of integrated site furniture, designed in collaboration with BMW Group Designworks USA, features the Rest bench. Its organic profile twists and wraps in unexpected ways causing visual stimulation.
