Supporting Times of Transition

The Regard system was created to solve the challenges of today’s waiting places, where people sit isolated, disconnected, uncomfortable and unproductive. Providing the right blend of solutions, Regard helps make these moments more meaningful by offering greater comfort, connection and privacy.

Designed to improve transition moments in healthcare waiting places, Regard also supports learning and working in libraries, cafes and other in-between spaces at education institutions and corporations.

Integrated Power

Integrated Power

People + Technology

Regard creates the right settings for leveraging technology in multiple ways. With integrated outlets at the surface, Regard provides easy access to power for personal devices. This enables productive waiting. And media cabinets bring monitors down to eye level, so people can choose whether or not to watch.



Intimacy + Separation

While waiting, most people seek separation from strangers and closeness to family, coworkers or classmates. Some like the stimulation of TV, while others prefer a quiet setting to focus on a task or read.

Regard provides a range of privacy options. Integrated dividers, screens and planters define and protect personal space in open environments.

Intimate Setting
Regard booths give a familiar place where small groups can gather for private conversations.

Multiple Postures

Choices for Comfort + Support

People benefit from movement and productive activities while waiting. Whether lounging, perching or sitting, the ability to choose setting and posture gives people more control over transition times, which improves the overall experience.

Regard supports many comfortable and relaxing postures while also providing appropriate settings for task work at a table.

Short- and Long-Term
Bench seating supports short-term active waiting, while private lounge settings accommodate a long-term stay.



Adapts to Various Needs

Each of the 150 Regard components has been designed for easy assembly, reconfigurability and replacement. This means Regard can readily adapt to evolving needs.

The Challenge

The Challenge

Wasting Time in Today’s Waiting Spaces

Fundamental changes are happening across healthcare, education and business, and everyone’s expectations are higher. And today’s waiting spaces are adding to the problem, not solving it.

The more crowding, chaos and noise around us, the more anxiety we feel. The less physically comfortable we are, the more our stress grows. The more time we waste doing nothing, the more dissatisfied we become.



Transitions are Often Overlooked

By studying the experiences of patients and observing people in more than 60 healthcare waiting rooms, our team of researchers uncovered significant opportunities for improving the places where people wait.

We observed individuals wasting time waiting for direction, consultation and results in uncomfortable, high-anxiety settings. No thought was given to how people were spending this time. This resulted in frustrating experiences for patients and families and lost opportunity for clinicians.

It provides choice and control over privacy and posture. Regard helps make waiting more productive and satisfying in lobbies, cafes, libraries, collaboration spaces, hallways, and corridors.
