Flokk provide a flexible seating solution for modern education centre

In response to the evolving landscape of education, Interior architects Integral embarked on a transformative project to create innovative learning spaces for ETH Zurich. The aim was to develop environments that foster collaboration, creativity, and adaptability, catering to the diverse needs of students and faculty as well as the two host teams – PBLabs and the Media & Methods Lab. Central to this was the integration of seating solutions provided by Flokk, chosen for their versatility, customisability, and commitment to flexible design.

"PBLabs RZ was designed with flexibility in mind, allowing teachers to host a variety of project-based courses and switch effortlessly between different settings during class.
