Red Dot
Many buildings have a “closed-circuit” ventilation system which lets in no fresh air directly from outside. The Healthcare window monitors the quality of indoor air and, when necessary, automatically ventilates the room without opening the window. It is furthermore designed with rounded edges and seamless joins to reduce the accumulation of dust. There are two modules at the bottom of the window which emit bird song and the scent of plants to give the sensation of being in the woods.

Statement by the jury

»The feeling of well-being in buildings is largely due to the quality of the air. This elegant window gives a closed environment a more natural feeling.«
