Sleeping in a hospital is not the same as sleeping at home. Especially after surgery or long term illness. To have someone around you whom you can trust is comforting to the patient. For this purpose Meander Medisch Centrum wanted a multifunctional sofa in every one person room. Atelier PRO designed the Healing Sofa. This rooming-in piece of furniture is unique in the Netherlands and has been developed for the Meander Medical Centre.


It is one of the first multi-functional pieces of furniture for professional care institutions. The Healing Sofa has combined functions of a writing desk, guest bed, sofa and table.


In search of space saving solutions, the demand for additional functionalities in single hospital rooms and the hotel ‘rooming-in’ provision finally led atelier PRO to this design. The single rooms allow the patient to have close relatives nearby for a longer stay. Meander is designed and equipped as a healing environment and the more comfort and space single rooms offers, the better.


During the day this piece of furniture functions as a sofa. It has been designed in such a way that it is easy to handle, easy to manufacture and can easily be combined with other furniture of the patient’s room.


The Healing Sofa is playful, not static, you simply relax on it. The cushions can be used flexibly without blocking the view. The sofa is available in various colors. Meander Medical Centre selected a color scheme that matched its rooms. Other features are: mobile, light of weight and suitable for industrial cleaning.
