In his 15 years of senior living experience, studioSIX5 President Dean Maddalena found a limited selection of functional furnishings and carpeting designed specifically to meet the needs of seniors and senior living communities at all levels of care. The designs available were typical traditional pieces that no longer suited the aesthetic direction seniors and their families were wanting. There was a need to fill, so thus began Product Design at studioSIX5.
studioSIX5 will team with leaders in the senior living industry to develop product that meets the transitional and modern aesthetics the market is seeking and still meets the stringent ergonomic and operational issues of senior living.
Clients to date include Kwalu for an initial line of lounge furniture that will expand in the near future, and Mannington Commercial Flooring for their new Il Palio Collection.
