The TeknoLab is an exciting workshop at the Norwegian Museum of Science & Technology, a creative environment for children to explore and understand the technologies that will drive future innovation.
HÅG Capisco Puls
Education & Research
Launched in September 2018, the TeknoLab is a “digital hall of the future” filled with cutting edge technology for young people to interact with. From 3D printers to unique programmable music machines, the TeknoLab aims to increase understanding in how digital tools can be used in creative processes where innovation can inspire student’s curiosity and creativity skills.
TeknoLab is used by school classes, for teacher training and further education, as well as being a regional ‘Talentsenter’ venue, one of four across Norway. TeknoLab will also be actively used in the national initiative " Skaperverksted i skolen ", whose goal is to bring the culture of creativity into school.
Speaking at the opening, Minister of Knowledge Jan Tore Sanner said: "The workshop is a great offer for children and young people, but also for teachers who can come here and learn more. It is basically the case that today's young people must understand the technology, but also contribute to the creation of technology, not just consuming technology. I think that what we see here will enable students to better solve many of the puzzles of the future, many of the riddles we have not managed to solve so far.
„So far the feedback on the HÅG Capisco Puls has been exclusively positive. From the height adjustment on the chairs to the castors on the chairs providing perfect friction and sound, everything looks and works very well.”Frode Myhr, Designer & Project Manager
The HÅG Capisco Puls was selected as the task chair for all seated workstations within the workshop. The objective from the designer was to use seating which provides solid ergonomic performance, but that also allows movement and freedom of postures. It also had to fit in with the aesthetics of the environment, providing a modern stylish look.
Designer & Project manager Frode Myhr, who was central to the development of the laboratory was familiar with the HÅG Capisco design.
“I have known the Capisco design for many years through personal use of the chair. For this project we chose the Puls series because of the colourful colour palette and robust quality – perfectly suited for regular use. The small upholstered pad provides just the right amount of comfort for the time the user is sitting, and the height adjustment allows all ages and sizes to participate.”
As well as this, knowing Peter Opsvik’s philosophies on motion and ergonomics, and how this is central to the chairs design – it was decisive for how the rest of the furniture was shaped.”
