NeoCon 2017: Surround by Steelcase

Winner of the NeoCon 2017 Gold Award for Best Healthcare Guest/Lounge Seating, Surround by Steelcase is an intuitive furnishing that's sensitive to the needs of patients and families.


Based on the premise that outcomes improve when a patient's family members are allowed to fully participate in their loved ones' care, Surround enables comfortable living within the patient's hospital room.


A spacious modular sofa with a distinctively modern look, Surround features a high-recline arm, an integrated sliding table for dining/work surface, ambient light so visitors may read without bothering a sleeping patient, and open storage with a coat hook for organizing belongings.


The unit also intuitively converts into a comfortable sleeper for overnight stays.


By creating a welcoming environment supportive of activities of daily living, Surround "helps cue behaviors that help the care partner to productively partner with clinicians."
