Developed with Rosalyn Cama of health-design studio CAMA, this architectural door system by Sky Design provides both privacy (visual and acoustic) and a durable and attractive alternative to conventional cubicle curtains. The laminated safety or tempered glass can be printed with different patterns and transparencies that protect patient modesty while maintaining the necessary sightlines for care providers; a variety of biophilic patterns and calming abstract motifs are available, including the CAMAflage Dayglow in Blue shown. Easy to clean, the impermeable material helps reduce the transmission of bacteria and infection, plus its translucent nature means daylight can still filter through.
Directly addressing the needs of healthcare professionals, the Rejuvenations Restore series of resilient flooring by Armstrong Flooring features a comfort base layer that reduces foot and muscle fatigue and joint impact. The result of research with the Bioengineering Department at the University of Pittsburgh, the flooring also muffles noise to help contribute to an overall quieter and more calming environment. Coated with a technical top layer — Diamond 10 — the vinyl sheets are stain-, scratch- and scuff-resistant and available in a range of neutral and wood-look patterns and colours.
Made from 100 per cent silicone, Luum Textiles‘ Top Coat faux-leather upholstery is additive-free and inherently resistant to microbial growth. Part of the Second Sight collection by Suzanne Tick, the non-PVC material helps support air quality, has an increased elasticity and brings a pleasingly subtle texture to upholstered pieces. The 18 colourways available include versatile neutrals, muted earth tones and more vibrant hues like bright yellow, fiery orange and deep indigo. Ink- and denim-resistant, Top Coat is also bleach- and virucide-cleanable.
