Furniture Company Debuts New School Furniture to Support Active Learning Spaces

MiEN Company, a furniture company serving the education industry, debuted four new furniture products to help institutions outfit active learning spaces.

“These offerings are easily moved around, and many can be quickly stacked out of the way when not in use. This means users can configure them into arrangements that allow for social distancing as needed,” Dr. Christina Counts, Vice President Strategy & Development for MiEN Company, said in a press release. “Of course, that’s not the only challenge that educators have to consider, and I can confidently say that these products can help learning environments adapt to changing pedagogical demands for years to come.”
