Contemporary furniture addresses contemporary needs. As people use your space for group projects, team meetings, or local gatherings, they want an effective way to foster discussion and collaboration.
Ultimately, your furniture really is the central piece in that equation. You can either have furniture that promotes collaboration or that makes teamwork difficult. And you can have furniture that supports creativity or that stifles it.
From our mobile chairs that ensure everyone has a seat to our media centers with built-in AV hookups so everyone can view the same screen, Agati intentionally designs furniture with collaboration in mind.
Collaborative furniture is specifically crafted to support creativity, boost brainstorming, and promote discussion for a group of people. Collaboration furniture addresses the need for teamwork without forcing your patrons to move chairs or rearrange your space. This creates a welcoming and innovative atmosphere that is perfect for addressing modern needs.
The variety of collaborative furniture is almost endless, but here are some of our favorites from our collection:
Collaboration furniture is a crucial aspect of supporting the needs of those who use your space on a regular basis. In our 30+ years designing furniture, we’ve noticed something: Creating furniture to support actual patterns of use is the most effective way to ensure a space is utilized as it’s intended. In other words, it’s important to thoughtfully consider how people will move, learn, and interact in the space you provide.
Whether it’s in a library, university, or other public space, modern collaboration furniture is multifunctional, versatile, and accommodates all patterns of use, including the ability to choose how we work without needing to move our belongings to the chair across the room, pull tables together, or sit on the floor.
As an example, our unique Manifest Desking System addresses use patterns and the need for versatility by implementing wavy work surfaces that allow individuals to work alone if they need to, while making collaborative workspace available between each patron.
Whenever we’re discussing modern collaborative furniture (especially tech-friendly furniture), one concern quickly comes up: Reliability.
First, the question of physical durability. Will the furniture actually last? Because we design our collaboration furniture for public spaces, we are intentional about ensuring every piece of furniture will withstand the rigors of daily use. By utilizing quality materials and construction, we promise you’ll be able to invest in the long-term future of your students, patrons, and community.
Second, the question of digital access. Will we have any issues utilizing the digital features on the furniture? At Agati, we employ quality materials and craftsmanship to seamlessly integrate power access and guarantee that the outlets, wiring, and digital features will work to support your community, for years to come.
In addition to the durability and practicality of Agati collaborative seating, we focus on making the aesthetic as long-lasting as the furniture itself. Since our start, we’ve prided ourselves on blending artistic form with long-lasting durability.
While strong design may at times go unnoticed, well-designed collaboration seating helps create a space that feels welcoming, promotes creativity, and supports focused learning.
As one of the few companies that designs our collaborative furniture for the unique demands of high-traffic spaces, we are confident we can provide the customized solutions necessary to serve your patrons well and meet the specific functional, visual, and technological needs in your space.
