These two chairs are the flexible version, designed for quick transitions between different rooms.
A very good option for studios, as the wheels allow the tables to be moved and also stored efficiently.
Another option for the new rooms will be these two chairs, with smaller writing tablets, good for taking notes in the lectures.
Ideal for group work, these two tables are best for discussions and workshops.
In order to find out your opinion about the depth of the new tables, we are questioning whether we should keep the tables as they are (600 mm), reduce them to 500 mm or to 400 mm. We need your help as we are trying to find the best solution in order to save space in the class room and also give enough space to students so they can have all the needed books or tablets placed on the table during the lectures.
Our exhibition consists of a multitude of tables, from teaching purposes to group work purposes. The most popular one is the group work table, as seen in the picture, it has a detachable white board which allows students to present their ideas in front of their team members by drawing or synthesizing the information in a more efficient and time consuming way.
From the Workday Four Leg Chair with Arms and Castors which is available in black, stone or white as standard to the green height adjustable chair, our furniture exhibition includes a wide variety of chairs from comfortable to more practical ones in terms of adjustment or storage.
Collection of feedback on the classrooms refurbished last academic year has indicated how important the choice of furniture is to both staff and students. Accordingly we are organising an exhibition of possible furniture options for staff and students to visit. Visitors can try the furniture in the exhibition and provide feedback which can then be used to inform the summer 2016 works.
The exhibition will open on the 8th February at 115 New Cavendish Street on the ground floor. Bear left as you come through the barriers and it is right in front of you.
Do please try to come along and give your views.
The exhibition will stay open until Friday 11th March.
Building on work carried out in the previous 2 years, which has seen 28 classrooms across the estate refurbished to date, there are plans being developed to work on a further 42 rooms this summer. To see which rooms have been identified for enhancement click on the links below.
