CHICAGO, IL – KI introduces its comprehensive Affina® Collection in space #1181 at the NeoCon® World’s Trade Fair 2013. Designed by Paul James and Dan Cramer, Affina is an elegant and sophisticated seating and table collection that addresses the growing needs and changes within the healthcare environment. Affina allows for visual continuity from the lobby to the patient room while addressing the growing needs and changes within the healthcare environment. The collection is comprised of guest, multiple, lobby, patient, bariatric, recliner and sleepover seating, as well as occasional tables.

Affina was developed with emphasis on the patient, patient family and caregiver’s comfort while maintaining a visual elegance. The collection addresses the furnishing needs of the patient, family member and staff and is designed to withstand the rigors of the 24/7 healthcare environment.

“NeoCon is the perfect opportunity to spotlight our most innovative healthcare solutions that are designed to meet the needs of patients, families and staff,” said Debbie Breunig, vice president, healthcare, KI. “We’re excited to show attendees how our Affina collection can create environments that encourage patient healing, support family involvement and increase staff efficiency.”

Affina’s design responds to the organic and natural elements of an environment. Offered in a broad palette of wood and metal finishes with unlimited upholstery options, Affina offers a visually inviting and appealing aesthetic, supporting a sense of confidence and trust to those entering the space. Subtle curves and crisp lines create elegance through the Affina line. By combining KI’s broad palette of wood finishes with unlimited upholstery options, Affina offers a visually pleasing aesthetic in any healthcare environment.
