First came the chalkboard around 18011, then over 150 years later came the whiteboard in the 1950s2. Each of these were revolutionary in the field of learning and sharing information collaboratively by allowing it to be put on display and then quickly erased or added to at a moment’s notice.
While information has “gone digital,” the whiteboard has remained a staple for collaboration, business meetings, college classes, to remove distractions when working out an individual project, and more. However, minimal upgrades have been made to its original design.
At Agati, we don’t think you should have to wait another 150 years for an upgrade. That’s why we created our FrameWork Mobile Partitions. These are much more than just a magnetic whiteboard on wheels—our movable whiteboards create places of refuge that include sound containment and the flexibility to adjust your space however you need to.
A Revolutionary Mobile Whiteboard Design
When the idea for the FrameWork Mobile Partitions was first starting to hit our team, we were at a university library watching students create their own private workspaces using whiteboards. The result we saw was clunky, but the students made it work.
This was confirmation that we were on to something.
FrameWork is a whiteboard on wheels that expands on the typical features of a mobile whiteboard, especially in the area of durability and functionality. FrameWork has remarkable sturdiness, is easy to glide, and has a modern customizable finish.
When you see the side-by-side comparison to a whiteboard on wheels, you can clearly see the difference in quality and aesthetic.
The Era of Flexibility
In the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, we first wrote about the era of flexibility. It’s no secret that many public spaces, particularly libraries, are continuing to become decentralized, especially as libraries are being pushed to support a wider variety of needs than ever before. This is a lasting transition in the industry, and requires us to prepare and structure in ways that allow us to adapt and adjust our space on-the-fly.
We can see this in motion at the Columbus Metropolitan Library where they have used FrameWork to create adjustable workstations for their patrons.

In the photos above, you can see the curved panels in action to create a wrap-around collaborative space that contains sound and provides a space where an individual or group can focus on the task at hand. However, FrameWork comes in both curved and straight panels to diversify the styles of use and support a space that feels both modern and intentional.
Whether you need a space that is segmented for 1-3 people or 4-6 people the next day, our movable whiteboards allow you to adjust your space without the hassle, any time.
Hand-Crafted Sound Containment
You may be wondering: How can we create flexible environments for collaboration without sound bleed becoming an issue?
Our answer? Intentional design.
FrameWork has acoustic panels that come in an array of colors and significantly reduce noise transfer. Even the magnetic whiteboard has a sound-reducing core in addition to the lower-level acoustic panels, which work together to keep the noise levels of conversations, trainings, or meetings to a minimum.
FrameWork Mobile Partitions are the only one of its kind that acts as a partition and a whiteboard to provide a fresh solution to you for supporting your community in the best way possible.
