Mecanoo and Gispen launch Room to Learn

13.01.2016 - Events, Project updates

Mecanoo and Gispen are collaborating on the learning environment of the future. They have recently launched, a platform for inspiration and knowledge exchange on further development and application of the innovative learning spaces. Now they will also present HUBB: an innovative furniture concept which challenges the classroom as we know it today.

Room to Learn  chronicles the development of future learning environments. It investigates how such spaces may look and what is needed for students and teachers to be able to learn in innovative ways. It also shows Mecanoo and Gispen’s vision, encouraging all interested parties to share their own experiences and ideas.

HUBB is the first product Mecanoo and Gispen developed together in the context of Room to Learn. As a series of building blocks, it allows for the creating of learning landscapes that cater to a broad range of education activities: studying, researching, collaborating, discussing, working in groups, etc. HUBB is unique in shape, materialis and usability.

Developed with the principles of Circular Economy, HUBB is responsive to changing needs and requirements in education and a timeless solution for learning environments. Built with materials like responsibly harvested timber, recycled PET and steel, all parts of HUBB can be reused. Mecanoo and Gispen invite educational institutions to participate in Room to Learn by creating a pilot environment for HUBB.

HUBB will be premiered on January 13, 2016 at the Beurs Facilitair, the leading facility-management trade fair in the Netherlands. To find out more and share your ideas, join Mecanoo and Gispen on
