Senior Interior Designer, Project Manager, and South Central Education and Cultural Practice Area Leader
Designers Select: Education_02 Education Bernhardt Design: Code
“Code provides a great way to create a sense of privacy within busy student spaces, and humanizes large volumes such as atriums. The collection allows for an interesting combination of lounge products, and multiple fabrics can be used on a single piece.” 
Designers Select: Education_03 Education Davis: Line
“This wall-mounted hanging storage element turns something mundane into an art form. Line comes in fantastic colors and wood finishes, and saves space with its pull-down hanging bar.” 
Designers Select: Education_04 Education CanFocus: MyFocus
“Workstations typically used in offices are becoming more common in educational spaces, particularly for graduate students. MyFocus integrates with phones and other devices, allowing the user to manage their personal study and group collaboration time.”

THA Architecture

Portland, Oregon
Designers Select: Education_06 Education Sedia Systems: JumpSeat
“Designed by Portland, Oregon–based Ziba Design, the JumpSeat is the epitome of sleek functionality, and this year brings the release of a new wall-mounted version of this innovative compact seating solution.”
Designers Select: Education_07 Education Egan: EganAero
“I love the simplicity and versatility of white boards, and Egan’s new product line, EganAero, utilizes the strength and thin profile of Corning Gorilla Glass (think iPhones) to create shadow-free writable surfaces.” 
Designers Select: Education_08 Education Knoll: Power Cube
“Power Cube is another product that enhances informal, collaborative learning opportunities. I’m a huge fan of white boards and it’s fun to see writeable surfaces appearing in table form, especially power-rich mobile tables.”

Principal and Leader of the Primary and Secondary

Education Practice Area

Perkins Eastman

Washington, D.C. 
Designers Select: Education_10 Education MakerBot: Replicator 2
“Relatively inexpensive 3D printers like this are changing the way we work. As they are introduced into schools, they will inspire teachers and students to transform classrooms and labs into ‘Maker Spaces.’” 
Designers Select: Education_11 Education Cree: AR Series Architectural LED Troffers
“Innovations in LED technology are beginning to achieve fixtures that offer high efficacy and great color rendition that are cost effective, conserve energy, and help create a high performance learning environment.” 
Designers Select: Education_12 Education Landscape Forms: Bicilinea
“Our landscape architect, LAB, specified these beautiful bike racks to sit in front of our new Dunbar High School. They look like sculptures and everyone stops to admire them as they approach the building.”
