Project 140 - Wall star panels and star ceiling tiles in Sheffield Children's Hospital scanner room.


Starscape was commissioned by the Childrens's Hospital Charity -  which raises money to build a better future for children who visit Sheffield Children's Hospital - to design, fabricate and install some star panels for the wall of a scanner room. Star ceilings can be very soothing, so they're a good fit in an environment where it's important that patients lie quietly, without moving. Approximately 1,500 fibre optic stars are distributed between 6 wall panels made from a lightweight aluminium composite, with a wipe-down surface..



It's hard to see in the photo, but the panels were printed with constellations shown - stars with joining lines to depict the shapes of the constellations. If you look carefully you can see the "Great Square" of the constellation Pegasus behind the technician (doctor/nurse?).

We were also asked to fit fibres to the existing ceiling so as to continue the star effect across the ceiling. There are 465 mixed diameter fibres in the ceiling with a higher star density in the centre tiles.   

The fibres were retrofitted to existing 600 x 600mm ceiling tiles.
