TABLE FOR COMMUNICATION - The social intercourse is an important part in a welcoming and vibrant rehabilitation department. In a Considerate Design projects we have studied the need for a venue that  encourages meetings with communication, conversation and exercise. The table is designed to fit into a large kitchen and will be a communication place for socializing, work and exercise for patients, relatives and hospital staff. The table has a soft, organic form, is welcoming in its design and with room for many. We have observed that conversations during meals may occur more readily between people sitting in the corner as opposed to placement on the facing page or next to each other. This table top with its many soft corners invites spontaneous conversation, work and exercise. The table top is planned to be sound absorbing, surface treatment and other materials is planned to be environmental approved. Photography in collaboration with Studio SEEK.
