Transformit's Ready-Made and custom stretch-fabric partitions and moveable walls define space and provide artful separation for people in healthcare, education, workplace, and hospitality settings.
The optional use of anti-microbial fabrics enhances hygiene management with Transformit’s structures. And, the natural curved shapes emulated by our tensile-fabric designs are ideally suited for use in Biophilic design, which aims to benefit people’s physical and mental health, fitness, and wellbeing through the integration of natural elements into architectural and interior design.
Studies show the Corona virus can live on hard surfaces for up to 4 days and that fabric may actually create protection against COVID-19 because its soft porous surface can trap the virus. Placing large fabric filters between people in a space can trap airborne water droplets that are being emitted. Air circulation is important, but filtered air is better!
Anti-microbial products cannot directly protect against viruses like COVID-19 but they make a considerable contribution to hygiene management by addressing co-bacterial infections that are created from a weakened immune system. Anti-microbial fabrics are 99.9% effective at killing bacteria, mold, and fungus that would otherwise continue to grow on textiles. In hospitals and doctor’s offices in particular, additional measures to improve hygiene standards with anti-microbial fabrics are very beneficial to patients and providers alike.
In addition to being made with anti-microbial fabrics to improve hygiene, Transformit structures can be printed with images from the natural environment and designed to play with form, light, and shadow to inspire our natural sense of wonder.
Tensile fabric offers the ability to create curves and flowing shapes that mimic the natural living environment. Humans evolved and lived, until very recently, in sync with the natural world. We have an innate need to connect with nature. Biophilic or nature-loving design recognizes this need and integrates elements and design cues from nature into the design of built environments to help achieve this connection for the benefit of people’s physical and mental health, fitness, and wellbeing.
