The design of the Cocoon system of hospital furniture is the result of extensive ergonomic analysis, based on UNI regulation 11377/2010, and carried out in a "pilot" hospital. The prospectives outlined in the “I Nuovi Ospedali” project by the Tuscany Region as prescribed by Law 40/2005 announce the transition from the classical treatment organization to a new organizational model, which provides personalized responses for the treatment of patients (from "cure" to "caring") and streamlining hospital stays. Through an interpretation of this guideline, Cocoon defines a alternative concept to existing products on the market, aiming at resolving most of the hospital issues arising and meeting the needs of the largest possible number of patients. In particular, the program pays great attention to the specific needs of elderly patients. The Cocoon system of décor is developed in accordance with a balanced criteria that takes into account on the one hand the functional and technological aspects aimed at the efficiency of medical operations and assistance involved, and on the other hand the physical and psychological needs of the various users (patients, visitors, medical and paramedical staff). For this purpose the colour choices that characterize the various elements of the project were investigated in depth.
