Library Ideas To Bridge The Gap to Further Education02-10-2018
With Schools and Colleges trying to bridge the gap between secondary education and University, a well-thought out design for a library is essential. At Pinnacle Furniture, our Design Team are continually keeping abreast of the latest design trends and principles to facilitate this.
Here are a selection of products which could be placed in a library to reflect the environment of a University:
Quattro Shelving Units
These library units are a staple product in any library and are available as straight, curved or as mobile units. There are a vast number of variations within the range including several sizes to choose from. As a manufacturer of the Quattro shelving range, we work closely with the factories to ensure that they are aligned with regulatory standards.
Horizon Study Booths with EN Chairs
This combination of products allow students to be able to independently study with minimum distractions. EN chairs are ergonomically designed and flex with movement, providing maximum comfort even for long periods of time. The base of the chair is available as skids, 4 legs, swivel, reverse cantilever or as a stool. The shape of the Horizon Study Booths help to keep students focused and can be supplied as a circular pod of 6 booths or as modular individual booths.
Feast Tables and Benches
These would make an ideal touch-down point to study or read. With the added bonus of incorporating a power source within the table, students will be able to use their laptops or tablets without the worry of running low on battery. With an increasing number of educational facilities encouraging students to use electrical equipment, it’s important to ensure that there is a sufficient number of power sources dotted throughout the building. The Feast range includes many options with the main one being the choice of having the frame as wood or metal – the Feast table with the wooden frame is shown in the photo below.
Quadra Soft Seating
The Quadra range offers sofas, armchairs, pouffes, tables and screens. This range gives you the freedom to customise your soft seating to ensure it fits perfectly in the size of space you have available. For the frame, there are 5 colours to choose from and the range can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics. One of the latest products in this range is the acoustic Phonebox which makes an excellent place to study independently using the laptop table from the Myriad range.
Myriad tables are available in two top finishes and different sizes, heights and shapes. The range includes options for coffee tables, laptop tables and poseurs to name a few. One of the most popular products is the cable managed table which hides unsightly cables and with the bonus of added a power source, it’s certainly a feature that will help to meet the needs of the students.
This range offers optimum relaxation and comfort – the perfect spot to read. Vieni chairs are available in three different bases; 4 legs in solid wood, crossover or as a rocking chair with solid wood sleds. The chairs can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics to match the chosen colour scheme within the space.
