New Smith System Product Line – Flowform®
Last updated on August 27th, 2021
Just like learning, furniture shouldn’t be forced
Flowform® features deliberate organic shapes with soft radii and rounded edging. Flowform® works individually or loosely slide together, giving students endless options to make micro-adjustments.
Great design requires legendary minds. Our team includes Roger Carr and David Williams of Radar Design, London, the gurus behind our popular Theorem® seating and other Smith System® products. They transform ideas borne from lively design charrettes with the Smith System® and Steelcase® design teams into products that students and teachers love.
Form and Freedom
The opportunities to mix and match Flowform® are endless. Each piece is a creative building block to customize learning spaces, for one student or an entire classroom. The clean aesthetic also makes these pieces work with your existing Smith System® furniture. The shapes of the soft seating and the 120 degree end panels on the storage allow endless possibilities to create the spaces that are needed–individual study zones, group study zones, large study zones, and space dividers.
For over 100 years, we’ve delivered educational furniture — and more. Our customers trust us to get their schools ready for opening day. We have a history of 98% on-time shipping, even during peak season. If there’s a hiccup, our customer service is unmatched.
Quality + Value
Schools districts want the best outcomes for their students. So do we. But we also understand budgets are tight. We’re always improving, to offer the highest quality at a price districts can afford. Count on a limited 12-year warranty, with a lifetime frame warranty, too.
Hear from the Designers
“Students want the physical tools that allow them to take control. They want fun furniture options that help them fulfill their own pedagogy and functionality, while educators want durability, versatility and value. That’s where we began.” –Roger Carr, Radar GB, London
“We also deliberately designed for “slippage”. Soft radii and natural forms allow a relaxed nesting of pieces – pebble-shaped tables working with curved benches, backrests, and storage. The multifunctional pieces tame the untidiness associated with casual, lounge-style furniture, but keep spaces comfortable.” –David Williams, Radar GB, London
