The Brooklyn Infusion Center by ZGF Architects utilizes glass for privacy and openness in individual "treatment pods" More
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York recognized the stress involved with chemotherapy and the infusion process, and created the spa-like Brooklyn Infusion Center to eliminate waiting time while providing patients personalized care close to home.
The inviting facility features 12 unique treatment rooms, referred to as "pods," situated along the edges of a light-filled "Central Garden" lounge space. "We spent a lot of time with the idea of sanctuary," explains Jan Willemse, partner at ZGF. "New York is intense, as is therapy, so we created a variety of spaces that allow patients to choose whether to interact and be social or to remain more private."
ZGF chose a custom version of Skyline's Organics Asian Grass glass pattern for the sliding doors surrounding each treatment "pod." The pattern "provides some privacy, but maintains a visual connection."
Wendy Perchick, chief of strategic planning and innovation at MSKCC says, "A patient told me that he felt the healing intensified here because he was so relaxed."

Skyline sponsored an engaging and educational event with Knoll, Tandus, and Suzanne Tick following NeoCon More
An evening with Suzanne Tick
Skyline sponsored an inspirational evening with Suzanne Tick, Knoll, and Tandus at the Gensler Chicago offices on the last day of NeoCon. The exhibition and weaving workshop, held in the Rotunda of the famous Louis Sullivan building, featured pieces from Suzanne Tick’s recent “Salvage” exhibition, while engaging designers in a weaving class about technique, structure, and material. The positive atmosphere– set by an upbeat music mix and Tick’s contagious optimism– revitalized the spirits of participating architects and designers following the busy week of NeoCon.
Tick began with a brief description of her work, having first picked up weaving in college with materials inspired by her father’s scrap metal yard. She went on to work for KnollTextiles and Tandus Flooring, specializing in material development for commercial and residential interiors, and again recently picking up weaving perhaps when her father– an original source of inspiration– moved into her home two years ago.
As it turns out, architects– people she’s worked with throughout her career– found the new pieces exciting and inspiring, and both NBBJ and Gensler have since commissioned pieces from her. Seeing this as an educational opportunity, she began leading workshops in Gensler’s NY offices to teach the craft of weaving. We were so fortunate to have had the opportunity to create a similar experience with Tick this year, and with talented designers from Knoll, Tandus, and Gensler.

Pratt Students Visit Skyline
Pratt Design students led by Interior Design Professor Jon Otis visited Skyline this year at NeoCon, and were given a tour of the Skyline factory and design studio where they learned how the glass products they specify are created and manufactured.
At NeoCon, KnollTextiles Creative Director Dorothy Cosonas and Skyline Creative Director Deborah Newmark offered an informative and inspiring presentation about the new KnollTextiles Glass Collection, which translates iconic textile patterns to architectural glass. It was an exciting and educational experience for the students and Skyline.
Back at our headquarters, General Manager Vipul Bhagat toured the students through Skyline's manufacturing facilities to show them firsthand how our glass is produced. They were able to see and feel the glass to understand the different techniques and capabilities we can offer for working with the material.
This was the second year we collaborated with Mr. Otis to provide his students a valuable learning experience, and we look forward to many more years to come! Thank you to Jon and Pratt for your continued interest in Skyline Design.
Please contact us if you are also interested in taking a factory tour.
