As efficiency, productivity and collaboration are valued across all industries and institutions, so multi-use classroom harbor immense benefits for the cognitive development and educational extension of youngsters. New Jersey-based company Hertz Furniture aims to provide students with a more open, flexible and accommodating space for learning through its designs.
The company seeks to break the overbearing stigma of traditional classroom arrangements — rows and desks of chairs, set up to mimic an assembly line. Hertz Furniture maintains that today's school spaces should reflect the direction of next-generation employment.
Multi-use classrooms should embrace color and modular furniture that accommodates interaction not only with the teacher but between the students, as well. From flexibility in arrangement and the cheerfulness of color to communication-forward spaces and places to integrate technology, Hertz Furniture aims to push the agenda for the multi-use classroom.
