New furniture for gathering spaces

In true design thinking fashion, the Design and Innovation Lab students worked at the end of spring to create and build wooden benches and a table for small group meetings on the third floor of the Commons, by the elevator. They first asked people what they needed from the space, then did their research (understanding the design constraints of the space), created a model, made a prototype, then tested it out. If student and faculty use is any indicator of the success of the project, this is a total win! Many independent studies and small group discussions will now have a home!
