GRAND RAPIDS, MI, July 11, 2022 – Addressing emerging needs in healthcare, Steelcase Health has launched solutions through an expanded collaboration with global design company West Elm and new partnership with experienced provider of durable, safe and welcoming furniture for behavioral health spaces, ModuForm. The two organizations strengthen the already robust Steelcase community of brands and offer solutions for specific needs of today’s healthcare organizations.
The combined expertise of Steelcase and West Elm has created inspiring spaces that accommodate patients, families and clinicians. The West Elm Health Collection by Steelcase Health offers a selection of iconic workplace furniture modified specifically for healthcare environments. The high-quality products are created to hold up to the rigors of healthcare spaces while feeling welcoming and inviting with clinically appropriate features such as an appropriate recline, metal legs, crumb sweep and health-appropriate, high-performance fabrics.
The collection includes Slope, Sterling, Mesa and Lucas, various seating products that will add a welcoming aesthetic to many healthcare applications such as lobbies, reception areas, waiting spaces, transition spaces, cafes, clinician respite, physician offices, consultation, outpatient centers and virtual care spaces.
The West Elm Health Collection by Steelcase builds on the successful contract partnership announced in 2018, which joined West Elm’s original, modern design expertise with Steelcase’s industry leading performance and dealer network to support the changing preferences for people at work.
Additionally, as the prevalence of behavioral health conditions increases, health systems are integrating this care across service lines. Steelcase Health researchers worked with ModuForm to offer these products to customers to create safe and welcoming behavioral health spaces for inpatient, outpatient, residential and emergency department patients.
Focused on manufacturing a wide array of furnishings that reflect a level of compassion and vigilance for patient and clinician welfare, dozens of ModuForm solutions are available in a variety of styles to promote recovery-oriented, safe and inviting spaces that support socialization — from foam filled, soft, puncture, fluid and ligature resistant vinyl to finely-tailored fabric covered in welcoming upholstery.
“Beyond the COVID-19 virus, the pandemic has highlighted several other health needs that can no longer go unaddressed,” said Nate Chandler, General Manager of Steelcase Health. “Steelcase Health is proud to expand its relationship with West Elm and build a new one with ModuForm, so together we can provide the products health organizations require to provide safe, comfortable, and effective environments for patients, families, and clinical staffs”
Organizations around the world trust Steelcase to help them create places that help people work better, be inspired and accomplish more. The company designs, manufactures, and partners with other leading organizations to provide architecture, furniture, and technology solutions – accessible through a network of channels, including over 800 Steelcase dealer locations. Steelcase is a global, industry-leading, and publicly traded company with fiscal year 2022 revenue of $2.8 billion. For more information, visit steelcase.com.
