HUBB Modular Furniture by Mecanoo and Gispen

April 27th, 2017 by retail design blog

At schools, classes and curriculums are all completely different and evolve over time, but the school environment never seems to change. Learning happens in all different ways and with collaboration becoming more mainstream, it seems logical that furniture would be more conducive to that. Architecture firm Mecanoo and furniture manufacturer Gispen joined forces to create an innovative line of modular furniture to help solve exactly that and it’s called HUBB.

HUBB is designed for learning environments that see a variety of activities and types of learning. The modular system’s components can be reconfigured as needs change so that institutions won’t have to reinvest again in a few years when they’ve outgrown the previous incarnation. By using screws and snap connections, the pieces can continues to be reused instead of thrown out as typically done.

Empty spaces can benefit from various HUBB configurations – stand-alone, against walls, or diner-style booths – and can offer quiet study time, brainstorming sessions with a partner, or group studies. The acoustic canopies made of PET felt help absorb sound, while implemented power and data outlets keep students connected.
