Concept

In practical terms, CONBOARD is an extremely flexible supply system providing mains power components, telecommunications and data technology as well as medical gases. Very straight-line, top quality, highly functional. Integrating light and designing CONBOARD as a front panel lends CONBOARD an additional emotional dimension. The inno vative frontpanel system with its flush-fitted medical supply unit clearly delineates the patient’s personal space. Its width of 1.6 m neatly takes up the same space as a bed with a bedside table. Its high-pressure coated surface made of natural wood blends into any archi tectural setting, clearing the way for a diverse range of creative design looks.
The CONBOARD front-panel system stands out because of the sophisticated way it coordinates lighting and medical supply components. zumtobel.com/conboard Design CONBOARD | Sander.Hofrichter Architekten

“Design schemes for patients’ rooms are moving closer and closer to hotel rooms rather than rooms on a hospital ward. This is why we wanted a medical supply unit that would perform several functions simultaneously. Concentrating the medical modules in a confi ned space and bringing them together at a central functional level was just as important to us as deliberate ly ensuring that the technical components remained visually unobtrusive.”
