On today’s episode, Cheryl interviews Lynnette Tedder, Healthcare Interiors Practice Leader at Perkins+Will. Lynnette was raised by a father who worked with NASA on the Apollo 11 LUNAR landing program, and of course, Cheryl was curious! She asked Lynnette the question, “What was it like to be raised by a father who worked with NASA on the Apollo 11 LUNAR landing program and how did that inform your work in healthcare?” Lynnette shares, “Math was big in our lives. My dad was a physicist and he had a chalkboard in his office full of formulas, which I had no idea what those meant. I have always loved floor plans and puzzles and I put that math thing to work. I think it makes me a good planner.” More on this and the new face of healthcare design from Healthcare Interiors Practice Leader at Perkins+Will, Lynnette Tedder, on today’s episode of the podcast.

Inspired by the properties of photocatalytic materials, Porcelanosa has evolved their KRION® Solid Surface material called K-LIFE. When K-LIFE comes into contact with light, it will be able to purify the air, expel harmful bacteria, and more. K-LIFE can easily be integrated into many applications – from wall coverings and claddings for ceilings, to custom tables, bars, sinks, shelving units and furniture. The application of K-LIFE in areas with high daily traffic, such as waiting rooms or reception areas, can assure a gradual decontamination of germs and lead to ongoing ecological benefits. Some research performed with KRION® K-LIFE, which has photocatalytic properties, proved that the material can significantly reduce the presence of bacteria. This revolutionary process has led to a patent pending, innovative, and exclusive product that will have a direct effect on our quality of life. Watch the video on KRION Natural Infection Prevention.
