Designers Select: Healthcare_02 Healthcare Nemschoff: Terra Casegoods
“Ready for use in treatment rooms such as infusion or dialysis, Terra Casegoods allow for an efficient and flexible layout that is highly customizable. One feature I particularly like is the translucent screen that can be retracted into the solid panel to afford visual connection with the neighboring patient— something patients often ask for.” 
Designers Select: Healthcare_03 Healthcare Luna Textiles: Motif
“This new line has a subtle pattern that shows sophistication and integrity. All 10 colors are nicely balanced. Above all, they are bleach cleanable!” 
Designers Select: Healthcare_04 Healthcare Milliken: ART MEDIA—Op Art
“This elegantly patterned carpet tile from Milliken really takes advantage of the one-meter-by-onemeter
tile size. It comes with Comfort Plus cushion, stain and soil resistance, and antimicrobial treatment that is standard to Milliken. I would imagine it covering a large waiting room, or used as an accent pattern inserted in a field of solid color surround.” 
Designers Select: Healthcare_05 Healthcare Forbo: Marmoleum Striato
“Linoleum is a proven product for the healthcare market, and I like it for its very sustainable, raw material source. Striato provides a very different, almost wood-like look. In 2013, Forbo re-launched Striato with many new colors, matching welding rods, and with Topshield 2, which makes the product ready to use with no initial maintenance traditionally required for linoleum.” 
Designers Select: Healthcare_06 Healthcare Flos: The Running Magnet
“What is not to love about this LED fixture with its simple, slick look and highly flexible configuration? I can see many different ways of using it as either an eye-catching design feature or as a wayfinding device in a variety of hospital settings.”
