Swing Arm System for Education

Ferco Seating

The Swing Arm seating system was developed to support collaborative learning styles with its innovative 'swing away' seats. Students can rotate to form small work groups with others beside and behind them.

The system can be adapted to any layout by utilizing straight or curved rows, or curved desks, on flat, sloped or tiered floors. Larger desks can be provided as the system will fit on narrower tread depths than other systems.

Each pair of seats has a 'swing away' pivot arm and an intermediate leg. The intelligently designed office style seats rotate to give a continuous line of sight of the lecturer and other students.

Featuring a pod of contoured ‘swing away’ seats set around a unique curved desk, the Collaborative Wave allows learners to seamlessly participate in tutor-to-student and student-to-student collaborative learning experiences through its innovative design.

Based on the principles of office chairs, each ergonomic mesh-backed seat moves away from the writing surface and rotate independently on a high-strength steel arm - as well as auto-parking when unoccupied.

While the curvature of the desk creates a larger working surface (+300mm) than traditional configurations and ensures adequate room for maximum productivity.

The Swing Arm seating system teamed with generous fixed desking is perfect for Harvard-style, horseshoe configurations, as well as straight rows. The ‘horseshoe’ style seating arrangement is an effective way of increasing dynamic interaction between students and the lecturer, who is able to move right into the centre of the room.

The Swing Arm system is ideal for higher education and corporate learning environments, creating a business-like aesthetic.
