Smith System Launches Flowform™ Learn Lounge
Last updated on October 26th, 2022
The next generation of school furniture for relaxed, collaborative learning has landed.
Smith System’s new Flowform™ Learn Lounge empowers students to customize spaces for academic and social learning. The stylish product line offers comfortable and transformable lounge furniture pieces that work in unison to provide what’s missing in many nontraditional seating spaces – ergonomic seating and work surfaces that promote healthier, engaged learning postures.
Ideal for Flexible Collaboration
Intended for grades 5–12, Flowform™ Learn Lounge gives students the freedom to curate entire collaborative learningscapes with fun, push-into-place school furniture. The lounge furniture product line includes highly versatile seating, tables and ottomans, flexible acoustical/privacy screens, and integrated power options.
How Flowform™ Learn Lounge Works
Though sold separately, the pieces are designed to work as a system. Collectively, they prevent awkward, even harmful, sitting positions. That includes uncomfortably leaning or slouching over too-low (or no) work surfaces often out of arm’s reach, a frequent culprit of lounge-style sitting and task areas.
For inspiration, Smith System drew upon the stylish, organic shapes of its Flowform™ products. Then it applied added ergonomic features. The moderately priced lounge furniture line includes:
Single or double upholstered, subtly curved bench-style seating with firm back support (same dimensions asan ergonomically designed student chair.)
Casters are sold separately
Four, softly curved tables and a circular ottoman that work with the curved seating to minimize the distance between work surfaces and seating.
Sound-dampening, flexible dividers that conveniently roll up for storage or repositioning; 48-inch-height provides student privacy without blocking teacher sight lines.
Furniture to Promote Student Wellness
Student (and teacher) well-being is paramount. Flowform™ Learn Lounge empowers students to customize spaces for academic and social learning. They can choose where and how to sit, with extra visual and acoustical privacy, and the tools to keep devices charged.
Senior Product Design Engineer
Students gravitate toward relaxed learning areas. Flowform™ Learn Lounge gives students more choices to feel comfortable and physically supported. It’s a great combo to foster engaged learning postures and, ultimately, better learning,” said Jack Johnson, Senior Product Design Engineer with Smith System.
Flowform™ Learn Lounge is available for order through Smith System dealers, beginning November 2022.

About Smith System
Back in 1905, Smith System was a different company than we are today. We built heaters for one-room schools. And then water fountains – and lavatory systems. It was a simple mission – to keep kids warm, hydrated and clean, so they could focus on learning. But we soon discovered that, beyond those basic needs, there were other ways we could help. The more we worked for schools, the more we saw an ever-evolving environment that needed a furniture maker to nurture the change. So, we stepped in.
What’s cool is that our original purpose never stopped guiding us. We still come to work every day to serve the “one-room schools.” Because in reality, every student learns a little differently, every teacher teaches a little differently and every classroom needs a unique solution.
We believe (with a heck of a lot of passion) that every student and teacher deserves the best possible space to inspire learning. And that’s what led us to what we are today: A company designed to deliver on the needs of education better than anyone else in the industry.
