We've won a tender to build new therapy spaces for the NHS!

We're very excited to announce that we've won a £250,000 tender to help design, develop and implement three new therapy spaces at the new development at Edinburgh's Little France hospital. The bid continues our collaboration with artist Alexander Hamilton and AV guru Derek Kemp. The installations will go live in June 2017.


Working with the GCPU

We've been privaleged to work with the team at the Glasgow Child Protection Unit in collaboration with the artist Alexander Hamilton. It's been sobering work but a wonderful opportunity to bring interaction design into the world of clinical environments and really make a difference to the patient experience.

We've created the connected PodPlay's, bespoke objects which enable a child controlled multimodal experience using, audio, projection and interactive lighting to create personalised, engaging but non-stimulating (in a clinical sense) roomscapes. These follow the child around the space giving them a touch point of familiarty and comfort.
