This house providing religious care for men required chairs tailored to the needs of its residents.

St. Jan Bergmans

When this institution that provides religious care for men moved to its new location, Aqua Viva, it was decided that the residents’ comfort would be upgraded by placing chairs from the Prominent Business Huys collection, each customised to individual client needs.

vezzano model

The Jan Bergmans Foundation opted for the Vezzano model, among others. The model that best suited each individual resident was reviewed, and each chair was then tailored to individual needs. You can read the foundation’s testimony below.

According to the customer

St. Jan Berchmans, “House for religious men”.

As part of our move to a new location, we were looking for new chairs for a number of our residents. Given that many of them spend a large part of the day sitting, comfort was very important to us. A chair with a stand-up function was also a bonus, and in some cases essential.

On the one hand, we wanted to give our residents a free choice of the most suitable chair that would perfectly reflect their personal wishes. On the other hand, we had additional wishes and requirements on our side in terms of cleaning, hygiene and quality. The colours of the new chairs also had to be suitable for the design and layout of the new location. With Prominent, we found a partner who could offer us the high level of service we needed.

After an introductory meeting with Prominent consultants, we selected a number of models and fabrics that matched our requirements and budget, then we organised two days with Prominent for taking measurements. Prominent brought all the models we selected to our location, and 25 residents were personally advised on the most suitable chair for them over 2 afternoons.

The chairs have now been delivered, and are being used to the full satisfaction of our residents. The special “healthcare fabrics” give the chairs a very homely look, but at the same time they are easy to keep clean.
We are very satisfied with this collaborative process. Prominent gave us excellent advice from start to finish, and we managed to fulfil all our wishes. We would definitely recommend Prominent to organisations dealing with a similar project.
