Clara in conscious custom colours
At the Aarhus University Hospital in Skejby, soft seating and office chairs are upholstered with two custom textiles: Clara Skejby and Skejby. Curtains made from Skydo feature in the meeting rooms.
In the patient-related areas, the easy-care textile Compound is utilised throughout. In addition, the technical textile Sano, which is ideal for healthcare due to its excellent maintenance and disinfection properties, is integrated into Kvadrat Roller Blinds systems.
The use of colour, material and furniture to support physical and mental well-being for staff and patients, while creating coherence, is a cornerstone of the interior concept. Reflecting this, the custom textiles unite the four tones that define the palette at the hospital.
“At Aarhus University Hospital, the conscious colouring of furniture and fixtures is employed as an active part of the Find Forward Strategy. This can be seen in our collaboration with Kvadrat, which led to custom fabrics that unite the four colours governing the colour scheme.” John Brøcker, Head of Design, C.F. Møller Architects.
Structured like a town, Aarhus University Hospital is the largest hospital in Denmark. The concept of ‘Healing Architecture’ has been applied by C.F. Møller Architects all over the complex. This can be seen from the design of the single-bed wards and landscape spaces, to the daylight inflows.
