Flexibility is the new mantra for both work and educational spaces, and this is reflected in the products showcased at NeoCon this year. Some, like National Office’s Maneuver tables or Kimball’s Mascot desk, help educators easily change the layout of their classrooms. Others, like Tarkett’s IxD series of flooring or VS’s Serie Lounge collection, can be used to define zones of collaborative work or individual learning. Here are some of the standout solutions that will help educational institutions provide the best learning experience for every situation and student.
