Educational spaces continue to evolve and are seeing some exciting new design trends emerge in 2023. The PURE Workplace Solutions design team keeps a close eye on the latest developments in education space planning and design, Here are the top design trends for educational spaces in 2023.

Collaborative Spaces

Building a Collaborative Environment is becoming increasingly important in educational spaces. Collaborative spaces can take many forms, from cozy lounge seating areas to group or pod-like work areas. These spaces are designed to encourage teamwork, communication, and creativity. The key is to create an environment that is conducive to collaboration, with furniture and layout that facilitate the flow of ideas.

Ergonomic Furniture

Spending long hours sitting at a desk is unhealthy and encouraging ways to take a break from sitting all morning and afternoon supports a more productive team. This makes ergonomic furniture more important than ever. Think chairs that support good posture, desks that can be adjusted to the right height, and accessories like monitor arms and keyboard trays that make it easy to find the most comfortable working position. At PURE Workplace, we're proud to offer a wide range of ergonomic furniture options that are durable, stylish, and functional.

Flexible Layouts

As educational spaces become more collaborative, it's more important than ever to have furniture that can be easily reconfigured. Flexible layouts featuring reconfigurable furniture allow spaces to be adapted to a variety of uses, from group meetings to individual seating areas to private conversation spaces. This makes educational spaces more versatile and helps to maximize the use of square footage.
