Truly Design – Mural Installations for Fondazione Forma ONLUS

Our friends over at Truly Design recently sent over a new project they just wrapped up that looks incredible good and also beneficial for those who use it. Peep more photos after the jump and here’s what the collective says about the project:

“In the past weeks we’ve been working on heaps of projects but this one haps perhaps been the most satisfying.

OIRM, Ospedale Infantile Regina Margherita, is among the most advanced health facilities focused on child care in Italy and is based in Turin, our hometown.

Before this experience, we could only imagine how much a MRI scan machine could be uncomfortable with its obnoxious noise, but we had no real idea of how scary it was for the hospital’s young guests.

So, we were invited by Fondazione Forma ONLUS to decorate the waiting room, the hallway, and the examination room, creating a rich world of colors and characters, in order to distract children and soothe their anxiety before the exam, as this helps hospital staff reduce medication needed to keep the children calm and still during the exam.

The MRI machine is now a starship ready to transport the kids through their challenging trip: we were glad to see some of them smile while leaving the room!”
