GH3 ceiling-mounted hoist system
C.F. Møller Architects
- Red Dot Design Award, Honourable Mention. 2009
Even though the concept behind the GH3 system features considerably advanced technology beneath the skin, the overall design avoids communicating ’machine’ or ’assistive technology’ in any way. The individual parts of this ceiling-mounted hoist system are based on classic, geometrical shapes, intended to create a sense of ease in the rooms in which they are installed. This plays down the technical aspect of the system, and the overall simplicity makes the use of the GH3 system more intuitive. It also makes it easier to keep the units clean – a consideration that is particularly important in the health care sector.
The individual parts of the system are all finished to make a statement of refinement with a touch of exclusivity, when seen on their own as well as when together.
