A patient-friendly computer tomograph has won the Braun Prize for product design, awarded last week in Germany. Created by Benjamin Holch, a designer at Milani D&C in Zurich, the machine, called CT.loop is an open, unconcealed scanner that aims to provide a less daunting experience for patients. ‘The forms and colours are designed to reassure patients and give them a sense of security. They lie on a supportive vacuum mattress while an explanation of the scan process is projected on the ceiling,’ says Holch.
The visual identity combines the club’s “illustrious heritage” and “future glory” with an eye to digital platforms and more casual fans.
The week-long festival will also host speakers including interaction design expert Daljit Singh and representatives from Heatherwick Studio.
His installation for London Design Festival draws on a number of inspirations, from clubbing in the 1990s to fake Crimean villages.
