node school desk by IDEO and steelcase




IDEO and steelcase teamed up to design node, a school desk that combines storage, a chair and a writing surface all in one mobile unit.  the concept was recently exhibited at the neocon trade show in chicago and is designed to support new forms of learning. research showed that many teachers are using multiple modes of teaching to help students with different learning styles. despite this shift, most student furnishings are still designed for a single mode. node allows students to easily shift from one teaching mode to another using a single piece of furniture. the seat is mounted on a rolling platform that has storage for their belongs underneath and a large writing surface with a hook for hanging a bag. the seat is a single shell and the table is large enough for writing and laptop use.
