Brian Eno is designing hospital rooms now

Musician and artist Brian Eno has a new job: hospital room designer. The Roxy Musician has designed both a quiet room and a light and music piece for a hospital in England. The Eno-spaces in the new, private £34 million facility are designed to help patients think, relax, or think and relax, and emerged from an experience one orthopedic surgeon had after he took his antsy mother-in-law to see a Brian Eno art exhibition.

Eno says he’s thrilled to have been asked to help, and told British newspaper The Guardian that he’s “met many women who have had children listening to one of my records.”


The BBC has an excerpt of some of the music that's played in the quiet room.
