Hygge Healthcare

Design and Make Sketchbook outcome.

HyggeKrog and HyggeSpille are part of a series of screens for the healthcare sector designed to provide patients with privacy. I was inspired by the Danish concept of hygge; which is commonly translated in English as ‘cosy’ but the meaning is far more than just cosy. A sense of warmth and privacy are two aspects I particularly focused on when looking at hygge. Also, I wanted to give the patients and staff more control of their environment, so I designed the screens to be lightweight and be easily moved with castors.  

Due to COVID-19 I was unable to physically make the furniture I designed for this project. My sketchbook includes virtual models and technical drawings to translates my design and concepts.
