LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL - PHASE 1
65 000 sq m with light from Fagerhult
- Year: 2015
- Location: Linköping
Linköping University Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in Sweden and also one of the first and largest projects where Fagerhult's Eira was delivered. In the development of the luminaire, valuable feedback from the Linköping University Hospital was given. The result was more than 1300 Eira luminaires delivered so far to this reconstruction, which will be finalised in 2021.
The focus of the project was patient lead, therefore an environment with many open spaces has been created, where patients can interact. The receptions are located on the first floor, to protect patient privacy and to increase accessibility for the visitors. Other important considerations have been to optimize the energy consumption and to create a good indoor environment for both personnel and patients alike. There has also been a wish to take advantage of natural light as much as possible.
As the project started, Fagerhult was creating Eira together with Speirs + Major, based on their vision of how modern healthcare lighting should perform. Since this luminaire fitted well with the request from Linköping University Hospital, Eira was chosen for the patient rooms. Eira provides a controlled, focused light, packaged within a slim, aesthetic glowing form for a less clinical feel.
Linköping University Hospital was one of the first and largest projects where Eira was delivered and valuable feedback from the customer was given in the development of the luminaire. Eira was installed in all 165 patient rooms together with Fagerhult’s Aluflex 600, a luminaire for mounting in medical supply units.
