Long ago, EdLab did not occupy the "western front" of the 5th floor... we were relegated to the back office (what we now walk through on the way to the water cooler), which we lovingly called the "iLoft."
That was back when the iPod was a 1.0 product.
Anyhow, this brief history is just to entice you to help lay the groundwork for the future of the iLoft... what is now a patchwork of old desks and wasted space will soon become the all new, refreshed, EdLab Techteria! Or the Edlab Caftechia! (Ok, Ok, so maybe we need an inspired name too...)
The goal is to make a tech-friendly cafeteria space! To do this, we need a new combination of tables and chairs (and anything else?). Anything is possible, but a good place to start shopping is on the Steelcase website (we get an institutional discount). But we can also get anything our hearts desire, within budget!
The main goal is to create an informal, energizing work space where groups can gather.
Thanks for any help you can provide. Please post ideas/links below.
