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!”

Next up on the Athen B. Gallery series of walls with San Leandro is Francisco Diaz aka Pastel from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The mural entitled “Costanoans” is over three hundred feet long and around 30 ft tall it is located off the side of Highway 880 at Marina West Exit. Photographs by Brock Brake. Here’s what the artist had to say about the piece:
“Costanoan by early Spanish colonists, are a Native American people of the Northern California coast. When Spanish explorers and missionaries arrived in the late 18th century, the Ohlone (named costanoans by the spanish colony), inhabited the area along the coast from San Francisco Bay through Monterey Bay to the lower Salinas Valley”. – Pastel
