Design Inspiration

Using Yale New Haven Health's specific finish standards, the BAM team created multiple, distinct color schemes tailored to newborn patients and their families. The selected finishes were called the "Cute as a Button" series. It features an engaging circular flooring pattern that serves as a soft visual cue for the MRI work zone, rather than using harsh angles or bold lines.
