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.
culture of design
As a core Teknion value, design thinking informs everything we do—from the form and function of our products to the ways we communicate with the world. Our talented in-house design team, often in collaboration with renowned architects, designers and thought-leaders, allows Teknion to conceive and craft furniture products that enable our clients to innovate, evolve and transform.
Why do colleges and universities choose Teknion? We work with educational clients as co-creators—listening, learning and becoming genuinely informed about the goals and challenges of modern learning institutions. Teknion participates in an ongoing dialogue with university leadership, faculty and facilities managers in order to develop 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.
Teknion is a little bit different. We pride ourselves on being approachable human beings—members of a global company that acts like a small company. This unique approach empowers our teams to make big decisions quickly, to be agile, responsive and solely focused on finding the right solutions for our clients.
