Our Top 10 Post-Covid Education Furniture Picks

It's been a year since the schools have been closed. With a dip in COVID-19 cases, several states are preparing to return to normalcy, this also includes reopening of the schools and colleges. Make sure your school is prepared!

Are you ready for schools to be back in session this fall? With many California schools planning to reopen this fall, we've compiled a list of some of our top back-to-school education furniture picks. Take a look at our list below!

1. Herman Miller Caper Multipurpose Chair

The Caper family of agile, stylish seating includes multipurpose chairs and stools, stacking chairs and stools, as well as the Caper Stacking Chair with tablet arm. Mix and match chairs and stools to add practical function and a pop of color to any space.

2. Herman Miller Everywhere Tables

Everywhere Tables possess fine lines and a refined aesthetic that complement any space. From conference tables for formal meeting rooms to student desks or standing-height occasional tables for more informal settings, Everywhere offers boundless flexibility, enabling any activity that requires an inviting work surface—big or small.

3. Magis Stool_One

Chair_One has intriguing looks and comfort—a welcome alternative to chairs that look comfortable but aren’t. Modeled from die-cast aluminum and constructed like a soccer ball, Chair_One was designed to be more void than solid, to use the least material to create the most product.

4. OFS Heya

In Japanese, Heya means “small room.” Designer Roger Webb created Heya to form smaller spaces within an environment. For individuals, Heya creates a place for people to escape, think, and breathe. For groups, Heya creates a place for people to closely collaborate and connect. Heya’s comfort and visual softness allow these small rooms to blend seamlessly into the office, while still providing the closeness and privacy people need to really focus.

5. Herman Miller Prospect

Prospect is designed to encourage impromptu collaboration and to provide a sense of privacy so that people can work together and then divide and conquer, all within an open floorplan. Fostering creativity is a priority for many organizations, but great ideas don’t always come from planned meetings in a conference room. For inspiration to strike, and for teams to develop their best ideas, they need the ability to gather, co-create solutions, and break off on their own for focused work.

6. Herman Miller Sayl Chair

Inspired by suspension bridges - structures that deliver the most using the least material - Sayl's 3D Intelligent® back lets you stretch and move, striking a healthy balance between support and freedom. The elastomer strands vary in thickness and tension to provide greater support along the spine where you need it most, and less everywhere else, so you are free to move.

7. Herman Miller Swoop Lounge Furniture

During his time as an instructor at the California College of Art, designer Brian Kane observed how students interacted with furniture in public spaces on campus. They perched on arms. They sprawled out. Very few of them sat in a traditional way. This observation inspired a versatile and fluid design response, which became Swoop Lounge Furniture. The sweeping curve of Swoop's seating components was designed to make the furniture comfortable for many different sitting positions.

8. SitonIt Sector Protective Screens

Now more than ever, our workspaces should be safe — free from distractions, contagions and anything that gets in the way of productivity. This collection of clear and frosted acrylic screens stands ready to provide the privacy, protection and peace of mind you need in a landscape where the way we interact changes every day.

9. OFS Coact

Coact Modular Lounge balances structure and freeform for congruent spaces that run the spectrum of playfulness to sophistication. Simply offering multiple levels of private and social settings empowers people to choose how they achieve their day.

10. National Mio Collaborative Tables

Mio collaborative tables are versatile and highly functional. With single-sided and double-sided units, and a variety of worksurface shapes, sizes, and materials, Mio embraces the evolving work culture. Available at desk height or bar height, Mio adapts to any style and any application.
