Functional Artwork

As its name suggests, functional artwork is designed to serve both form and function. Whether reducing excess noise, concealing equipment, providing ambient lighting, or offering an interactive experience, these products don’t just look pretty. They’re useful, too!

Tactile Art

Tactile art, a type of sensory art, is made up of mixed media with varying textures and surfaces, and as its name suggests, is meant to be appreciated through touch. The artwork encourages sensory exploration, which can strengthen cognitive and developmental function in individuals struggling with memory impairments such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Scientific studies show that interacting with tactile art can elicit retrieval of memories or familiar feelings in those struggling with memory disorders. This connection evokes positive emotions, and with it, a sense of peace and calm.

Sound Absorbing Acoustic Panels

Acoustic panels reduce ambient noise in a room for a more comfortable environment. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, these panels can be customized with images, graphics, patterns, or colors to complement the aesthetic of an interior space.

Reducing excess noise can be particularly helpful in environments where the use of hearing aids may be more common. In open spaces where people congregate, such as a dining room of a senior living community, acoustic panels can make it easier for residents to relax and socialize.

Prints on Headwall Panels

Made from materials designed to withstand frequent cleanings, prints on headwall panels combine form and function to attractively conceal necessary medical equipment. Our panels can be customized to look like framed art, canvas prints, or solid surface artwork to suit the design aesthetic of any care environment.

Decorative headwall panels make patient rooms appear more home-like and less clinical to reduce patient anxiety levels and, in some cases, expedite the healing process. When incorporated throughout an entire hospital, treatment center, or hospice home, printed headwall panels help standardize locations of supplies and equipment for caretakers.

Illuminated Art Displays

Illuminated art harnesses the visual properties of light to present a uniquely eye-catching method of displaying images. The translucent properties of acrylic or glass allow light to pass through from behind the display, highlighting and enhancing the artwork.

In memory care environments, these displays are a pleasant alternative to televisions, as screen movement and light flickering could potentially be distracting or confusing to residents. Illuminated art provides a sense of warmth while supplementing room lighting with a soft, ambient glow.
