at the University Hospital of Malmö
The cylindrical emergency and infectious diseases unit at Skåne University Hospital was designed by CF Møller Architects and was built 2010.
The seating in the emergency waiting room was changed to 'Nova C Back Wide' in the end of 2016. This new seating uses the circularity of the building and is installed with the same center point as the building itself, following the curved window line as well as the curved direction of flow from the entrance to the reception. The reception is clearly visible from all seats, which also means that the supervising nurse has visual control of the faces of all patients.
The 'Wide' model of the Nova C series was developed specifically for this project, in cooperation with hospital where personel from the emergency, hygiene and cleaning departments were in direct dialogue with the designer, on site.
The hospital has a function rental agreement for the seating, in circular economy spirit, meaning that Green Furniture takes full responsibility for keeping the furniture in mint condition over time.
