National announces that its newest seating collection, Weli, has been honored with a Nightingale award at this year’s Healthcare Design Expo. The Nightingale Awards, named after Florence Nightingale, honor new products that are exhibited at the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference. Presented by Healthcare Design Magazine and Contract Magazine in partnership with the Center for Health Design, the Nightingale Awards recognize contributions to the healthcare built environment through product design and innovation that contribute to healing. Juried by seasoned healthcare design professionals and healthcare facility managers, the winners are selected based on the product’s contribution to a healing environment, functionality, quality and durability, aesthetics and style, pricing, and innovation.
The Weli seating collection was designed for people who heal, learn, discover, and aid everyday activities in healthcare settings. Weli’s broad range of solutions accommodates diverse physical needs and social preferences. Guest chairs feature varied seat dimensions to ensure comfort for a wide range of users. Rocker, lounge, and easy access seating solutions create supportive and comfortable options for all that visit healthcare facilities. With a capacity to uphold 750lbs in each seat, Weli offers peace of mind in spaces that need to support all partners. Weli also offers coordinating tables, ottomans, and benches to add warmth and functionality to any healthcare setting.
