How to Design a Successful STEM Environment
Systems Furniture is the Higher Education Furniture Expert
How We Did It:
Step one was to create an interior design that encouraged students to collaborate. Laura Witbro, senior interior designer, created a space plan that fit the furniture requirements, chose wall finishes and accent colors with an upbeat energy, as well as a carpet pattern and chair textiles that picked up the vibe. She also designed a custom reception desk to welcome students.
Step two was to give students options for working together. Account manager, Stacey Prodoehl, created several unique meeting areas. Students can choose from tables and Wit ergonomic office chairs from SitOnIt Seating, contemporary booths and lounge seating from Furniture Lab, upholstered tiered seating and ottomans from High Point Furniture (http://www.hpfi.com)
"The STEM space has been a success from the day it opened," says Rob Elliot. "It invites students in, sparks collaboration and encourages new ideas. We couldn't be more pleased with the project and Systems Furniture."
