The White Noise Lamp is a furniture piece inspired by Alvar Aalto’s work on the Paimio Sanatorium, and in particular, his chair of the same name. The White Noise Lamp is designed as a furniture piece for the ill and elderly who find themselves in the unfamiliar and predominantly sterile surroundings of a medical institution. The concept is that warm diffuse lighting and white noise can help relax the patient. The aesthete of the piece is designed to counterbalance the sterility of the surrounding environment and provide a more homely atmosphere.
