Manufacturer's Product Description

The Neighbor family of seating defines an open lounge space to provide privacy and conversational places to connect with family while waiting.

Features
Space Within a Space
PRIVACY + CONNECTION
The Neighbor family of seating features unique high backs and simple rectilinear lines to create separation within an open lounge space. Chairs, tables and multi-seat units combine to foster connection, protect personal privacy and create intimacy among visiting family members.

Supporting People + Belongings
ACTIVE WAITING
To support active waiting, Neighbor welcomes people and their belongings with a range of seats and surfaces – including connecting tables and wide armrests.

Versatile Asset
MODULAR UNITS COMBINE + RECONFIGURE
Neighbor seats, tables and armrests configure in modular units to meet multiple needs, including alternative postures, bariatric support and privacy. Neighbor is easy to reconfigure as needs change over time.

Steel legs and frames provide structural integrity and ease of cleaning for high-traffic healthcare settings.

Insights
The Challenge
PROVIDE PRIVACY IN A BUSY, OPEN SPACE
While waiting in healthcare environments, most people seek separation from strangers and closeness to family. Some like stimulation, while others prefer a quieter setting to focus on a task or read.

Observations
ISOLATED, DISCONNECTED + UNCOMFORTABLE
Overcrowded and chaotic, conventional waiting areas can increase stress, anxiety and dissatisfaction.

Valuable time is wasted as people sit, wait and read in what feels like a holding pattern.
Family members are disconnected, surrounded by strangers and limited in their ability to interact with and support each other.
Filled with rows of uncomfortable armchairs, waiting rooms are often chaotic and unsettling.

Design Insights
COMFORT + CONNECTION
Thoughtfully designed waiting places can support the right levels of privacy and interaction, to make these moments of transition more meaningful.
A range of spaces within a space accommodate visitors of different sizes and needs.
Modularity means healthcare organizations can create custom configurations and repurpose over time.
