Milan, Design Week 2018 – From 16 to 28 April the University of Milan (Università degli Studi di Milano) will show the prototype of the healthcare of the future during the INTERNI FUORISALONE 2018 event for the INTERNI HOUSE IN MOTION 2018 - 20 YEARS exhibition and will be lit up by CoeLux® innovative technology.
The architect Filippo Taidelli presents “Cells”, a project that investigates the relationship between technology, healthcare and architecture; Cells is a site-specific installation shows the prototype of the healthcare of the future where once Milan’s most ancient hospital, the Ca’ Granda, was.
The installation is set in one of the most spectacular and most visited locations of Milan Design Week. That Università Statale which in 1456 was the General Hospital founded by Francesco Sforza, the Duke of Milan, and designed by the Florentine Renaissance architect, Filarete.
About Cells - the work aims to metaphorically synthesize the effects of the evolution of the world of healthcare and make them perceptible through an installation that immerses the visitor in a sensory experience.
Entering one of the two cells the audience will be will be greeted by the artificial skylight by CoeLux® (the system installed is CoeLux® HE 45 LC). Used in hospital radiosurgery environments, it reproduces the effect of natural light, sun and sky, helping to reduce the anxiety that inevitably arises in an enclosed or underground space. Patients and healthcare professionals (like nurses and doctors) can benefit from the positive effects of CoeLux® systems: an improved environmental condition, achieved through the benefits of artificially reproduced natural light, can generate a better physical and emotional state.
The installation will be open to visitors:
April 17 – 22, 10.00 to 24.00
April 23 – 27, 10.00 to 22.00
April 28, 10.00 to 18.00
Interni HouseinMotion – Corte dei Bagni, Università degli Studi di Milano -Via Festa del Perdono 7, Milan.
Artificial Intelligence in the healthcare of the future will be the theme of the panel discussion: "Cells, the Healthcare of the Future" which will be held Wednesday, April 18th , from 18.00 to 19.30, at the Aula del Senato Accademico of the University of Milan (via Festa del Perdono 7, Milan).
CoeLux® is currently the only technology capable of recreating the effect of the natural light of the sun and the sky indoors, increasing expanse and wellbeing.
CoeLux® recreates the effect of the warm and direct sunlight that lights objects up, along with the blue scattered light of the sky that tinges shadows blue reproducing typical outdoor lights, shapes and volumes inside, delivering joy and positivity. The system works thanks to the combination of three main elements: a cutting-edge LED technology that reproduces the sunlight’s spectrum, direction and brightness, optical systems that reproduce the endless distance of the sky and the sun and millimetre-thick nano-structured materials that create the Rayleigh scattering process, which produces the light and the colour of the sky in the atmosphere.
