SoCo Space

Our definition of a SoCo SPACE comprises of all those spaces in between and around campus. Hallways, atriums, canteens, breakout or study areas and last but not least; the university library. The flexibility of our designs enables multipurpose environments. Spaces for collaboration, socialising, eating, learning or solo work. Empowering choice – not prescribing. Allowing students to find out what works. For them.

From Contemplation to Collaboration or Snacking. Various functions – same inviting layout. Easy on the eye. Easy to maintain. Easy to handle.

Full utilisation of space

Large scale canteens. We love them because let’s be honest; this is where multipurpose furniture solutions really make a difference. Different height options in chairs and tables allow for instant tiering of the room. Incorporating the FourLikes® Wall Bench for full utilisation of space with soft seating options like the FourLikes® Meet, your canteen space functions outside lunch hours as the place to meet, socialise or do group work.

When function meets design

Then magical things happen. FourSure® 44 has so many qualities. When in need of a larger space for campus events, this chair stacks and stores easily. Transform the space back into a conference setting to host a memorable graduation day with chair linking devices. Rest assured; the signature v-shaped backrest embraces the spine through all those long speeches.

Sustainable Learning Environments

We all know students interact with furniture in creative ways. We need innovative, reactive and environmentally responsible furniture solutions that sustain in an ever-changing environment. Solutions which stand the test of time and daily use.

The EU Ecolabel accreditation demonstrates the sustainability of our certified furniture range throughout the whole product life cycle; from sustainably sourced materials to chemical use restriction, and eventually to end-of-life. Being more environmentally responsible is imperative when creating the shape of things to come. The furniture industry is an essential player in this. Thankfully, we are all looking to a more environmentally conscientious future.
