Philips: Patient Interface

Inspiring and envisioning better sleep experiences.

Working with the Philips Design patient interface team for over 10 years, Essential has developed new design approaches for minimal-contact masks that provide a lighter and more comfortable sleep therapy solution. These masks provide an open field of vision and feature a lightweight design that helps patients breath freely through their nose and sleep comfortably through the night.

In close collaboration with the Philips Design team, Essential explored and prototyped a broad range of possibilities for patient interface including, masks, headgear, and new material exploration to address a myriad of critical user interface challenges.

Essential inspired masks have been honored with several design awards including a 2014 iF Product Design Award, 2014 Red Dot Award, and 2014 IDEA Finalist.
