377 Kispi Towel

£81.00
Dimensions: 163 x 98 cm

Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the 377 Kispi Towel was created to anticipate the completion of the University Children’s Hospital in Zürich. The name of the towel comes from the local nickname of the hospital, Kispi, and the internal H&dM project number, 377.   

 

The towel takes its shape from the floorplan of the hospital, including its 16 courtyards. Pink, the only strong color applied in homeopathic doses throughout the building, was therefore the clear choice for this iteration.

The Institution of the Children’s Hospital in Zurich

The University Children’s Hospital has been operated by the Eleonoren Foundation since 1874. An international competition launched in 2011 called for a new facility in combination with pioneering hospital architecture. The call for proposals specified the client’s requirements as follows: “We wish to create an atmosphere in which children of all ages and their parents will feel as sheltered and comfortable as possible despite their personal circumstances, and a facility that is architecturally and functionally designed to optimize treatment procedures and the work of the staff.” Herzog & de Meuron won the two-phase competition in 2012.

The mandate of the Children’s Hospital is to supply highly specialized care of children in conjunction with research, teaching, and the fostering of a new generation of academics in the field of child healthcare. The 200-bed hospital is the largest in Switzerland for both inpatient and outpatient care of children and adolescents. The new project in Zürich-Lengg will replace the facility in the Hottinger quarter, which has long outgrown its current capacity.
