Discipline: Professional Concept

Most traditional classrooms are designed for one-way learning with tight rows that inhibit movement and interaction, positioning the teacher as a “sage on stage”. The node chair’s mobility can take a passive space and turn it active, offering a flexible classroom designed for social and active learning. The node chair provides seamless transitions between lecture-based modes to team based modes and back again. The large personal work surface is adjustable, providing space for laptops, textbooks and other mobile devices. The chair’s base offers a unique storage solution for student backpacks and belongings.
