Education Solutions: Vanerum Stelter: Bloom
Developed to evoke a sense of community and discovery, Bloom is a collection of classroom furniture by Vanerum Stelter geared toward early learning environments. The collection’s elements encourage interaction to foster a long attention span in children age six and younger. By incorporating movement, technology, and imagination, each product creates an innovative approach to active learning.
Even the youngest students are invited to choose how they learn best. Seating options such as Jokum (below), a rocking stool, promote movement to create alertness and nurture cognitive engagement.
Seed (seen to the left in top photo), a lightweight chair series, features a balanced shell and an ergonomic design for young children. Integrated sound dampening minimizes classroom noise, and stackabilty allows for quick transitions between activities.
The interactive digital learning tool, Lighthouse (above), encourages hands-on participation and teamwork. The product turns any floor space into a desktop using a projector, which introduces students to technology at an early age. The Ready casegood series (below) incorporates storage and is outfitted with large caster wheels for easy mobility, allowing teachers to quickly create different areas for learning.
A display unit in the shape of a tree, Sprout (seen atop Ready in top photo), highlights student work and individuality to round out the collection.
With an inspirational color palette, the elements of the collection nurture positive social interaction that creates a love of knowledge. Each piece was developed through research into learning styles that will give children a good foundation for future success. The Bloom collection won gold in the education solutions category of the 2013 Best of NeoCon® awards.
