Higher Education Learning

Choosing the right furniture for the campus and hippocampus.

Since our start over 100 years ago, VS has been committed to exploring ways design can be used to develop skills for the next generation of careers. We constantly observe and learn from our clients to develop simple, accessible, and beautiful designs, focused on bringing people together and setting institutions apart.

LEARN

The learning environment has fundamentally changed to answer a unique set of challenges that the next generation of students and professors face. To address these changes, we provide solutions that allow institutions to explore how pedagogy is delivered. Discover how you can leverage VS’ experience to help change how you do business in your learning and lecture spaces by using an innovative set of tools.

THRIVE

Students today face a unique set of social and emotional challenges, and the skills they need to be successful cannot come only from the classroom. Creating scalable and spontaneous moments across your college campus is an important part of developing the social aptitude needed in the modern work environment. VS products allow spaces to be changed on a dime and bring people together in new and effortless ways.

LIVE

The Living Learning environment across campus is evolving into a space that not only plays an important role in attracting students with beautiful and engaging designs, but is also fundamental in creating incubator spaces where careers are explored and strong social bonds are formed. VS can help campuses keep a cohesive look and flow throughout these spaces with durable, ergonomic, and collaborative furniture.

LEAD

Whether you are leading a cohort of students or are on the journey to publish groundbreaking research, finding space for thought leaders to come together across disciplines and generations must be considered when designing for both collaboration and heads down work. In research and faculty environments that bridge these two worlds, VS’ deep understanding of educational environments drives our approach for academic workplaces.
