botton and gardiner has enjoyed working with Ozcare since 2017 to supply custom furniture into their aged care facilities. Working with such a dedicated and thorough client, and seeing the efforts they go to for their residents is truly inspiring.
The process kicked off with custom furniture guidelines outlined the client. botton + gardiner produced prototypes which were tested, revised and approved. Criteria like foam densities, slip factor, and the ergonomics of backrest angles, height, and support are not only important for comfort but ensure the safety of elderly residents with reduced physical strength and special needs. Special industry specific requirements of anti-slide upholstery fabrics, waterproof resistance and the boldness of pattern and colour are all carefully considered to enhance the safety and welcoming atmosphere of the interiors. Light, bright and welcoming furniture packages for aged care projects is just one of our many talents!
