Bernhoven hospital

A new way to cure and care

The patient is central at the new Bernhoven hospital and the colourful, close to nature interior gives a calm feeling for both patients and staff. The lighting from Fagerhult provides comfortable light, which is a result of close collaboration between installers, architects and construction managers.


In 2009 Fagerhult started to work with Kuijpers installation to plan the new Bernhoven hospital. The patient’s needs were central to the project, with a décor inspired by a sense of security and trust, in an effort to achieve faster recovery times. The beautiful photos of nature on the walls and its colourful interior bring a calm feeling to this healing environment. The interior is more like that of a hotel situated close to nature in a wooded area.

The account manager Ruud Hoetmer at Fagerhult worked closely together with Kuijpers, interior architects and the construction management to tailor the lighting according to the construction philosophy.


Lighting comfort for well being

The patient’s room plays an important role when it comes to their recovery and well being. Much attention has been put on lighting comfort in these rooms. Each patient can regulate the type of light through a remote control by the bed.

The bed head units are specially designed Triple YouYou with T5 of 39 W/24 W. It is a practical and attractive fixture that provides a soft direct and indirect light. An additional arm mounted reading light with LED is also installed to the fixture.

The downlight Pleiad SLD provides general light at the foot of each bed and is completed with a table light.

The important corridors

In hospitals a lot of time can be spent in the corridors; they are often a waiting area, which is why corridor lighting is an important factor. The general light is produced by the popular downlight series Pleiad and it is complemented by decorative light lines from Notor in the stairwells and elevator lobbies.

A variety of general light

Fagerhult have a wide range of general lighting for different areas, a variety of which has been used in Bernhoven, specifically in communication areas and in patient rooms. The recessed Recesso with daylightsensor, the round Pozzo and the clean design of square and rectangular shaped Indigo Ed2 and Indigo Combo Delta.

Wall luminaires and downlights are harmonised with the colourful interior all over the complex, from corridors and meeting rooms to the staff dining rooms. The pendant Avion gives a comfortable work light over the reception desks at various departments.
