Henry van de Velde “Quality of Life”

Pantopicon just submitted Salonklets for the second jury round to compete for the Henry van de Velde Quality of Life¬†Award 2016. Salonklets was developed for residential care centre Immaculata in Edegem and was recently implemented after a 5 month pilot in one of the centre’s residence wings.
The project’s result is a dynamic system that enables residents, family, visitors and care workers of a residential care centre to co-create their surroundings in order to build new social networks together. The project explores a future of care for the elderly, in which the organisation’s role extends beyond caring for its residents and reaches out towards residents’ family and visitors: the organisation supports community building in order to facilitate family and visitors in taking care for their relative at their end-of-life.

More news on the Award’s nominees in November 2016. Fingers crossed!
