At our booth at the Georgia Chapter of the Association for Learning Environments summer conference, the Haskell team got to speak with a number of facilities and procurement attendees about their concerns and future plans. Again and again we discussed the construction, safety and modernization of their districts and how furniture built for active learning fits into the overall vision of their district.
While shifting to a 21st century classroom is critical for preparing students for the workforce, for facilities directors, defining what that means can be challenging. Active classrooms need to be safe, comfortable, within budget and the furniture needs to hold up to the wear and tear of regular movement and repositioning.
Durable Furniture Solutions for Districts
The Ethos Chair. Facilities Directors that test drove the Ethos chair at the show found it comfortable and were impressed with the ability to make a single workstation right or left handed. They were also liked the Haskell Lifetime Guarantee, one of the best warranties in the industry.
Built with an agile quad base and a classic seat shell, Ethos blends flexibility (like 360-degree swiveling capability and an ambidextrous tablet arm) with mobility and personal storage. Haskell’s seating design anticipates the needs of today’s vibrant classroom—a classroom that transitions seamlessly from lectures to discussions and interactive groups.
The Fuzion Sit to Stand Desk. Many facilities directors at the show were interested in this sit to stand desk to replace the teacher podium. Because of Fuzion’s unique base, this mobile desk allows teachers to move around the classroom without hitting their legs. Plus, the 20-year warranty is the best in the industry.
The Fuzion sit to stand desk is technology that works. While many sit to stand desks bounce and are springy (causing the product to wear down after just a few years), our Hydraulic SureLock Construction prevents bounce and slippage of the height adjust. And, our Unibody integrated construction at the surface mount provides greater strength and stability.
