Hospital Device Shows Patients Tomorrow’s Weather
‘Tomorrow Is Another Day’ is a weather display device created to show the next day’s forecast to the terminally ill.
For patients in palliative care units who need something to look forward to, Mathieu Lehanneur makes sure that the sun will come out tomorrow, today.
Lehanneur is a French interior and industrial designer whose latest creation, ‘Tomorrow Is Another Day,’ is aiming to provide hope to those who are confined to a hospital bed.
‘Tomorrow Is Another Day’ is a weather ‘portal’ in patient’s rooms that displays a visual of the weather that is projected for the next day. Rather than provide today’s weather, Lehanneur’s device, which is intended for the palliative care unit of the Diaconesses/Croix Saint Simon Hospital in France, offers patients with chronic diseases and terminal illnesses the opportunity to stay ‘a day ahead of real time.’
