What if you had computer tables that were both durable and well-designed? Imagine how much could be accomplished in your facility if you were able to provide quality computer space for any patron, whether they’re doing individual work or in need of collaboration.
Computer workstations are a crucial part of any library. Students spending a full day working on a project, patrons making a quick stop to check email, and people who rely completely on their local library for any computer access are just a few of the needs libraries must provide for.
Here at Agati, we are one of the few who specifically design our computer tables with library patron needs in mind.
Especially in public spaces, furniture often needs to be able to last under decades of daily use. At Agati, we combine durability and design on every table we create to ensure you are able to serve your community well, for years to come.
With customizable colors, wood styles, and configurations, each of our library computer tables can be tailored to fit your specific needs. We are additionally dedicated to sound environmental practices, using quality sustainable materials and methods.
Exemplified in our Media Station, our workstations are comprised of a series of streamlined and structurally sound components to merge a strong aesthetic with specialized durability.
In order to effectively meet the needs of a wide range of people, the computer workstations available in a library need to be versatile enough to support any patron’s required use, and they need to be intentionally designed to promote productivity and wise usage of space. No two people work the same way, and computer stations need to be built with that in mind.
From the collaboration and configuration made possible through our Manifest Workstations and other desk systems, the variety of options we have available at Agati are sure to address the major needs you have in your space:
The top concern for quality computer stations is clear: reliable power access. Wires need to be organized and the outlets themselves need to be dependable. This is a top priority for us in all of our library furniture solutions.
In each of our computer tables, we incorporate hidden wire management by using the legs of our tables to cut down on cord clutter and include a dual-sided power access unit for both desktop and mobile laptop use.
These power solutions provide two things for your facility: a clean and professional environment and a great experience for all your patrons.
Here’s what we often see: library computer tables that could seat six will only have two or three patrons using the table at once. You’ve likely seen this at times in your facility as well.
Why is this so common? It’s simple: the personal bubble.
The subconscious need for personal space is an often-rejected reality in traditional library furniture. Seats will stay empty and space will be wasted because of our natural desire to feel secure. Contemporary computer stations, such as our unique Manifest Desking System, solve this issue by implementing wavy work surfaces that allow individuals to feel secure while sitting next to their neighbors, while also making collaborative workspace available between each patron.
Modern collaborative computer stations are multifunctional, versatile, and accommodate all patterns of use, including the ability to choose how we work without needing to move our belongings to the chair across the room.
Whether you’re searching for a single-use desk or an eight-person computer station, we are able to support a wide variety of needs by incorporating a straight bench, a 120-degree pod, or the aesthetically-pleasing “zigzag” station into any facility.
Library furniture usage will differ greatly in public and private sectors. While university computer tables are often required to provide focused solutions for group projects, independent study, and media presentations, public library furniture instead needs to support a wider variety of needs for children, students, and adults.
By designing spaces with both form and function in mind, we’re able to put together a space that is comfortable, professional, and contemporary, all while using durable furniture specially designed for the work patterns in high-traffic spaces.
With our 30+ years of experience crafting library furniture, we’ve learned best practices for any environment. Whatever your situation, Agati will provide the customized solutions necessary to serve your patrons well and meet the specific functional, visual, and technological needs in your space.
