Designing With Surface Materials To Reinforce Key Trends Shaping Hospitality Interiors (Print Course)
Competition drives innovation, and grocery stores and supermarkets are in the midst of great evolution. The familiar brick-and-mortar stores long at the center of consumer life are being spurred to change by intense online competition and the shifting shopping habits of Millennials and Generation Z. This course shows trends in how grocery retailers bolster sales and clientele by creating a positive shopping experience with lively design and compelling in-store destinations.
The mission of healthcare organizations is to provide patient care that is effective, medically relevant, and operationally efficient in a comfortable, convenient environment where the patient-provider relationship is at the center. Surfaces play a key role in creating a positive tone within healthcare built environments, but surface quality is dependent on proper material selection, durability of design, and material performance. Designers must understand how to specify surfaces in healthcare settings that address disinfection, durability, and design challenges to achieve safety, efficiency, and patient comfort.
