Brunner Comfort Upholstery Supports Rehab

The out-patient rehab centre Jena is setting new standards in terms of health care services – relying on comfortable Brunner furniture in the process.

We found Brunner particularly convincing because of their innovative products and their use of sustainable materials.

The health care sector is particularly discerning when it comes to chairs. A case in point: The out- patient rehab centre Jena (Ambulantes Reha Zentrum Jena) belonging to the “Gräfliche Kliniken”. Since November 2013, this centre – featuring three floors with some 3,800 sqm surface space, equipped with the latest technology – has been offering prevention and therapy for orthopaedic and neurological patients.

In order to convey a sense of calm and harmony to patients suffering from a wide array of illnesses, the awarding authority wanted to realise a unified formal language throughout the entire building. Moreover, the chairs were to exude a sense of stability and security by simply looking at them, to offer a high level of seating comfort, and to provide good support for both pelvis and vertebral column. Further requirements included remaining unblemished by stains and disinfectants, and being robust in daily use. And the furniture was to sport a puristic design, matching the straightforward formal language created by the Stadermann architectural studio.

Brunner was able to carry the day against severe competition thanks to its high-quality functional furniture series. In particular, the extra-comfort seat upholstery of the milanolight comfort and first line series convinced the awarding authority. A further plus: Brunner manufacturing takes place in Germany, and Brunner pays great attention to sustainable materials. Now patients can wait comfortably seated on milanolight comfort and first line chairs equipped with armrests. The lounge chair taceo, specifically created for the health care sector, has also been deployed. Matching side tables, central column and stand-up tables, bar stools and arm chairs of further series complement the furnishings. For the employees, too 2.0 swivel chairs, finasoft conference chairs and torino tables were selected, among others.
