Cove Featured in Fast Company

May 28, 2024

Exciting news! We are thrilled to share that Fast Company has spotlighted Tactile’s Cove concept project in their latest article! Cove, our innovative chemotherapy chair, is designed with patient comfort at its core. This concept reimagines the treatment experience, focusing on patients undergoing chemotherapy’s physical and emotional needs. At Tactile, we believe that design has the power to make a difference, and Cove is a testament to this philosophy. By incorporating ergonomic features, customizable settings, and a calming aesthetic, Cove aims to transform the clinical environment into a more supportive and comforting space for patients. Fast Company’s feature highlights how thoughtful design can enhance patient well-being and make challenging treatments more bearable. We are honored to be recognized for our efforts to improve healthcare experiences through design innovation.

Tactile + Michigan Design Council

January 20, 2022

Last year Tactile partnered with the Michigan Design Council to mentor students participating in the annual Michigan Design Prize competition. Open to all K-12 Michigan students, participants are challenged with coming up with real design solutions to societal issues. Finalists are rewarded by getting paired up with a professional designer to help refine their ideas and bring them to life. Tactile designers teamed up with the following students who each received awards for their designs: Mackenzie Bossory (Homeschool), a gold winner for “Paint-Go-Round”–a timed painting game by switching seats when the timer goes off; Victoria Stokes (Roosevelt Elementary), a silver winner for “Love Birdy Zoom Game”–an interactive game for family and friends; Skylar Hempel, Jada Blue, and Samantha Fenwick (Adlai Stevenson High School), bronze winners for “Isolation Roomz”–a timed obstacle course; and Connor Harrison, Yousif Habsh, and Mario Gjini (Adlai Stevenson High School), silver winners for “Tag Bracelet”–a tag game that uses notifications of who’s “it” on digital bracelets based on six feet proximity between players. It was a great opportunity to offer inspiration and design expertise to the future generation of designers. Congratulations to all the winners!
