Dianet, Utrecht, Netherlands
Dianet is a dialysis centre located in Diakonessenhuis in Utrecht, in the Netherlands.
When designing a new care facility, Dianet asked Rohde & Grahl to create a suitable interior that would be both modern and people-friendly, where the well-being of both patients and staff is given a priority.
The interior was to be ergonomic and easy to maintain. The main focus was on good planning, and on the optimum selection of furniture.
The design of the ground floor is oriented towards the comfort and well-being of the patients, while the first floor houses offices and conference rooms for the staff. The area is furnished with MISHELL chairs in pastel hues.
From the beginning of the design process, Rohde & Grahl involved the main users in the creation of their new workplace – Dianet employees had an important voice in product selection. The project was an example of human-centred design, a creative approach which is currently gaining popularity.
