The collection is made to support family members while they’re staying in a patient’s room. The design works as a sofa or sleep surface with helpful features, like an integrated sliding table for working or eating, an ambient light for reading, a high recline arm to lean back on, layered storage for personal items, a tray for photos or get well cards, and a coat hook – all thoughtful details aimed at making things comfortable during a difficult time. <div class="post-limited-image"><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-345318" src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-810x506.jpg" alt="" width="810" height="506" srcset="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-810x506.jpg 810w, https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-800x500.jpg 800w, https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-768x480.jpg 768w, https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-500x313.jpg 500w, https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 810px) 100vw, 810px" /></div>
