node™ with worksurface
Renewal date 01-03-14
When reinventing the traditional classroom chair, we didn't go back to the drawing board. We went back to school. We found classrooms that were static, allowing only for passive, one-way learning. We met educators with a desire to implement multiple pedagogies to support multiple learning styles. But today's classrooms are still unresponsive and unsupportive.
The node chair is mobile and flexible. It's designed for quick, easy transitions between one mode to the next. With node, a classroom can flex from a lecture-based mode to a team-based mode, and back again, without interruption."
Steelcase developed node with sustainability in mind. In doing this from a very early stage in development we were able to create a product that uses sustainable materials, ships knocked down in a small carton (while installing in seconds) to reduce the carbon footprint, and durable for years of use in demanding environments to keep it out of the landfill or recycle network. Sustainability is increasingly important to School and Universities who customers are an environmentally aware generation.
