How Ergonomic School Furniture Benefits Student Learning

Friday, August 31st, 2012

It’s Back To School time. Educational facilities need school furniture that accommodates students in learning activities.

The education system, students, and teaching styles are all evolving and school furniture needs to evolve effectively with them.

Modern school furniture should be flexible and mobile to promote a learning environment in the classroom that improves the learning experience.

The best office and classroom furnishings are the ones made for flexible and collaborative spaces. Studies have shown students work better when assigned to group work, student centered style learning. This learning style allows teachers to guide learning rather than instruct. In this learning environment students become more engaged in learning activities.

Mobile furniture works excellent in student centered style learning because the furniture can be easily reconfigured for a variety of group work activity. The benefits of having mobile furniture are as followed:

 

  • Lightweight furniture allows students to move desks into cluster formation and back into rows for lecture or individual work.
  • Swivel seating gives students the option to comfortably adjust their seating positions to help them stay more focused in class.
  • Spacious work surfaces allow students to use a variety of mediums to learn, from paper notebooks to electronic devices.
  • Ergonomically flexible mobile furniture allows classrooms to stay clean, be handle by all users and easily managed without the risk of injury.


Comfortable, student centric school furniture should be available in all educational environments. Focused students are successful students. Flexible, mobile and highly functional furniture will keep your students on the road to success.

Whether you’re in a new office space or refurbishing your current office, you can increase your office productivity with an effective office design. The ideal office environment is a professional, functional and comfortable space. With an effective office design you can project to your clients that you are the best professional in your field to do business with.

Studies have revealed that office comfort and productivity are interrelated. It only takes a few changes in layout and organization to make your office environment comfortable and highly productive.

Here are some ways to improve office designs today:

Benefiting From The Feng Shui Office Furniture Setup

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

The office is a place you will spend the majority of your week inside. It is important that your office furniture optimizes your comfort and productivity at all times. To establish this type of office atmosphere, you need to position your office furniture in a way that will best benefit you. The principles of Feng Shui can help you setup your office furniture in a way that will reduce negative energy flow. This includes assisting you in clearing your mind and enabling you to make better decisions during the work-week.

Here are just a few principles of Feng Shui you should consider following:

  1. Position your office desk in clear sight of the doorway. This will enable you to see who is entering your office and help you protect and secure sensitive documents.
  2. Always provide adequate space between office furniture. This can be accomplished by leaving at least an 8-inch gap between your bookshelves, filing cabinet, desk and the wall.
  3. Arrange office chairs and sofas in a triangle that faces your desk. This will make your office desk become the center of attention and power in your room. However, be sure the office chairs are slightly facing one another to sustain positive flow of energy during meetings with clients and guests.
  4. Eliminate clutter from your office by keeping it organized while reducing negative energy flow. Clutter can be eliminated in your office by having items you regularly need on hand stored in an office cupboard or a bookshelf.
  5. Add hints of bright color to your office furniture and accessories to stimulate creativity and promote positive energy. An excellent color to use is red because it is favored by Chinese interior design as a color of prosperity.

By applying these Feng Shui principles, your work space will be cleaner, neater, and more productive. Enjoy a better work environment today by purchasing from Edwards & Hill Office Furniture.
