Part of the University of Washington, UW Medicine works to improve the health of the public by advancing medical knowledge and providing outstanding primary and specialty medical care. When UW Medicine decided to outfit their new laboratory building, they worked with design firm Perkins + Will and principal Robin Wille, Wille Inc., to select Knoll furnishings for use throughout the facility.
Their vision was one of innovation, energy efficiency and sustainability. Accordingly, they chose SMART© certified Life® tasks chairs for their meeting rooms and conference spaces.
Set within the glass interiors of the new building, iconic Knoll designs punctuate the space with modern grace and style. Overlooking views of downtown Seattle, a light-filled conference room showcases SMART© certified Chadwick® task chairs.
In the lounge SM1 sofas from Shelton Mindel offer comfortable collaborative areas for scientists and students, while Saarinen Womb chairs complement the foliage outdoors, bringing outside in. Florence Knoll benches and Pfister sofas create a neutral palette in a UW medicine sitting area. A conference room features Life® task chairs. The cafeteria is outfitted with Arena café tables and GREENGUARD Certified® Gigi® chairs.
