Have you ever imagined what the world with no trees or clean oceans would look like? Where would we go to get away from the city? How would we would survive without the materials we need to make shelter and medicine?
Today, more and more businesses are realizing the importance of office design and how it affects their employees. Flexible workspaces are much more conducive to collaboration. And by opting for adaptable furniture that can be used for more than one purpose or activity, businesses can cut down significantly on office expenses.
In order to create this kind of adaptable and collaborative environment, you need flexible office furniture. Below, we’ve listed some pieces from the Supple Collection that are perfect for creating a flexible coworking environment.
As we head into the new school year, it’s important to consider changes that will set students up for success. Classroom furniture plays an important role in active learning, which is why many schools are turning to more innovative and advanced solutions like adjustable desks.
Adjustable desks provide amazing benefits to students, no matter the age or subject being taught. In fact, they’re so incredible that we think every classroom should have them. Here’s why.
Did you know that the world’s human population is expected to grow by two billion people in the next 30 years?1 If this happens, and we continue as we do, we will no longer have the natural resources we need to sustain our everyday lives. A population that large would require about three planet Earths in order for us to have all the resources we need.
Sustainability is no longer just something we should look at, but rather something we must focus on. Our lives literally depend on it.
That’s why it’s so important for us to educate young learners about sustainable practices and get them invested in protecting the environment. By bringing books about nature into our homes and classrooms, we can get young learners excited about nature so that later they go into careers that help support global sustainability.
As families start to count down the last days of summer vacation, teachers and administrators are gearing up for the new school year. With the new school year comes another opportunity to change lives and help future generations gain the skills they need to become successful, productive members of society.
Getting ready for the first day of school means getting your classroom in tip-top shape, and making any needed changes or adjustments. These classroom furniture ideas can help teachers, administrators, and school districts prepare for the upcoming calendar year.
Is your office furniture affecting your employees’ mental health? Science says yes! Because of advancements in technology, many companies have now gained the ability to employ remote workers. While remote positions can be beneficial in many ways due to the flexibility they provide, they also may limit social interactions and affect mental health.
The good news is, there’s an easy way for companies to combat the issue and help their employees remain healthy. By using the right coworking space furniture, companies can help employees stay engaged in activities that promote social interaction and mental wellness.
At the Supple Collection, protecting the environment is always at the heart of what we do. We strive to encourage eco-friendly mentality within the community by supplying libraries with furniture made from environmentally sustainable materials.
Libraries play an important role in educating the community on a wide range of important topics, including matters involving environmental conservation. By equipping libraries with eco-friendly furniture, we hope to prompt conversations about environmental awareness and reduce natural resource consumption in urban environments.
This month, we’ve decided to take a moment to acknowledge some of the great things that libraries are doing to encourage environmental awareness by highlighting some awesome nature-themed books. These inspiring books have been the recipients of esteemed literary awards and have prompted young people across the nation to take action to protect the environment and get outside.
In recent years, we have entered a new era of education. Classroom activities no longer involve the simple lecture and listen method, but instead have gravitated towards approaches that facilitate deeper learning. Interdisciplinary lessons, collaborative projects, and hands on learning have now become the norm.
But, unfortunately, while our teaching styles have evolved, our classrooms have not. Many schools existing today were built back in the 50’s and 60’s and lack the proper constructs to support new styles of teaching and learning. Simply put, we need more collaborative spaces in schools. Collaborative spaces are indispensable to active learning, and are a necessary adjustment our schools will need to make in order to sustain improved emerging pedagogy.
