The changing landscape
On the 21st century campus, learning can, and does, happen anywhere. At the same time, how students learn in the classroom and elsewhere has become more collaborative and participatory, often enhanced by the use of personal digital tools. The evolution of learning—and teaching—presents schools with an opportunity to enrich the educational experience through dynamic, engaging and purposeful spaces that adapt to a variety of learning activities and teaching formats.
Teknion offers a comprehensive portfolio of furniture products designed to support the goals of modern educational institutions and the learning practices of students across the campus: a single student reading at a library desk, a group working in a project room or a classroom of students engaged in a lively discussion while sharing ideas on laptops and tablets. We combine decades of design expertise with in-depth research to create effective spaces for the people, technology and curriculum of today and tomorrow.
Following design principles refined by our inhouse design team, and through collaboration with architects, designers and thought-leaders, Teknion crafts durable, highly functional furniture that brings immediate and long-term value to our clients.
Focused on responding to client needs, Teknion participates in an ongoing dialogue with educational professionals, including university leadership and facilities managers, to develop informed furniture solutions aligned with new research and emerging institutional concerns.
True vertical integration gives Teknion the ability to control production, reduce costs and ensure prompt delivery. It allows us to efficiently develop custom designs and permits exceptional flexibility on how to organize orders around a client’s needs. Our capability extends to custom textiles and finishes to enhance campus architecture and express the institutional brand.
At Teknion, we pride ourselves on being accessible human beings—members of a big company that acts like a small company. This entrepreneurial spirit empowers our teams to make big decisions quickly, to be agile, responsive and dedicated to finding the right solutions for our clients.
