of a chair. They made two designs into three-dimensional chairs, a red/ green and a bright yellow rocking chair, with..goldfish bowl

Interactive installation titled Nature Trail, created by lighting designer Jason Bruges, for the corridor walls of Great Ormond Street Hospital for children, in London.

Designed to distract children from what awaits, the installation is formed from 70 LED panels integrated behind graphic wallpaper. Motion sensors detect the presence of visitors and patients, activating the screens to display silhouettes of animals meandering through the woodland.

“The benefit of taking this kind of approach to distraction is a really positive experience for children and their families,” says Natalie Robinson, deputy director of redevelopment at the hospital. The scheme has already had such a positive effect on patients that it is being extended across the rest of the walls by 2017.

Lullaby Factory, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children

Lullaby Factorya secret world that cannot be seen except from inside the hospital and cannot be heard by the naked ear, only by tuning in to its radio frequency or from a few special listening pipes.

Welcome to our Lullaby Factory!

Lullaby Project

by Studio Weave

Lullaby Factory!

Our Lullaby Factory was founded in 1852 by my great, great, great, great grandfather. This is the oldest Lullaby Factory in the world still in operation. We’re very proud of our Lullaby Factory and the great lullabies it produces for the Sleepies in hospital and beyond. We hope you enjoy your visit and don’t forget to take advantage of the complimentary nap at the end of the tour!

How are the Lullabies Built?

Before any lullabies can be built, we need to collect the base ingredients. The two main collection tools are the Whistful Fillment Filaments, and the Satellite Lilters. The Whistful Fillment Filaments are very long invisible grasses that reach up from the rooftops and comb the air for wishes, the most important ingredients. The second tools are the Lilters that lie high up in the sky and listen to the planetary music. Planetary music is the undetectable basis for all music and dreams and it was the invention of Lilters that allowed the earliest dream factories to be set up. The Lilters can detect the planetary music and communicate it down to the factory by a sort of singing with their Lollips.

Lullaby Project!

Hackney-based Studio Weave has constructed a network of listening pipes in a back courtyard of London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital to create a secret factory of lullabies for children. The architects were inspired by the messy pipes and drainage systems that already cover the surface of the brick walls. Instead of covering them up, they chose to add to them with a wide-spanning framework of pipes and horns.
“We have designed a fantasy landscape reaching 10 storeys in height and 32 metres in length, which can engage the imagination of everyone, from patients and parents to hospital staff, by providing an interesting and curious world to peer out onto,” explain architects Je Ahn and Maria Smith.
