Collaborative Wave - Encouraging Group Work with Fixed Seating
Featuring a pod of contoured seats set around a unique curved desk, the Wave allows learners to seamlessly participate in tutor-to-student and student-to-student collaborative learning experiences through its innovative design.
Based on the principles of office chairs, each ergonomic mesh-backed seat moves away from the writing surface and rotate independently on a high-strength steel arm - as well as auto-parking when unoccupied.
While the curvature of the desk creates a larger working surface (+300mm) than traditional configurations and ensures adequate room for maximum productivity.
Ferco's expert designers recognise that the ability to collaborate has emerged as a critical skill for today's students.
