Discover Patient Room 2020 at the Corian® Design Studio in New York
Patient Room 2020 is a collaborative design for a next-generation inpatient care environment that strives to improve patient experiences and optimize caregiver performance.
Corian® was selected as the predominant material used throughout the project because it is nonporous and, when properly cleaned, does not support the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. The use of Corian® was optimized through innovative architectural casework and fixture details developed by fabricator, Evans & Paul, including:
- Clean-cove wall base detail that provides a seamless transition from solid surface walls to the floor
- Cove details throughout casework design to minimize corners
- Integrated transitions between the walls and the grab bars to eliminate escutcheon plates
- ADA-compliant vanity with an integrated grab-bar
- Flush shower pan with an Infinity Drain threshold
- Countertop with embedded Cleankeys® smooth top keyboard
- Flush wall outlets and technology with TRUFIG mounting kits, including medical gas, electrical, switches and digital interfaces
- Anti-microbial fabric solutions that eliminate germs on contact, such as Milliken Biosmart®, were used to combat bacteria growth on soft surfaces
