Carnegie has released the Halcyon Collection, a line of privacy solutions and TPO wallcoverings that contributes to the design of welcoming, safe and restorative spaces. Carnegie collaborated with artist and designer Jill Malek to develop a sophisticated collection that is fresh and contemporary.
The word “halcyon” denotes a period of time in the past that was idyllically happy and peaceful. The curated designs and colorways within this collection embrace the concept of a radiant and immersive field of nature that could imbue a sense of serenity within patients, visitors, and healthcare staff alike.
Halcyon’s six patterns—Pastures, Tilled, Grasslands, Eucalyptus, Husk, and Hillside—take notes from the more end user-focused hospitality and residential design markets, veering away from institutional aesthetics and creating bright and airy settings through organic, biophilic forms. Having consulted with healthcare professionals to ensure color palettes and patterns were conducive to this mood, the design team used imagery that has a soft and continuous flow and is easy on the eyes. Within each organic pattern, movement is suggestive of flowing fields on a sunny day.
The Halcyon Collection aims to infuse health-care interiors with transformational designs influenced by soft lighting found in nature to help promote wellness and healing—not just in the body but also in the mind.
