DISTINCTIVE HUE - a portable and constructible wall (2016)
How could you offer a more diverse surrounding within the hospital, and give the people more control over their own space?
Many current hospital spaces have monotone and white surroundings, which doesn’t bring any additional comfort to the patients and staff. The environment could offer more diversity through colour and shapes, but also the ability for the people inside the building to control their surroundings. By offering a more diverse environment, you can make people feel more comfortable and at ease in the hospital.
With a relatively simple intervention, by means of a frame and coloured panels (coated with ‘healthcare textiles’ of Maharam), you create a more playful and dynamic surrounding. With the panels you can easily click on-and-off yourself, and turn them around its axis, you give the user the control over their own surroundings.
