Multi-use Furniture for the Contemporary Design Technology Environment

At S+B we know that the right environment can increase productivity and ignite new creativity.

Our mission is to design and deliver interior solutions – from full building refits to the manufacture and supply of furniture for the contemporary design technology environment. Creating dynamic teaching environments through attention to detail in the design of educational furniture.

“Students learn best when classroom furniture is the right size for their individual needs and when desks and tables are positioned in ways that suit the task they are engaged in.” British Council for School Environments

Design Technology Range

S+B Design Technology furniture has been designed to withstand the rigours of the technology environment in a school.

The S+B Design Technology Range is different. Each unit has been designed with a specific application in mind, but all have been designed to facilitate the diverse range of activities which will be encountered in the 21st century Technology environment. The S+B range has been developed to update the perception which many students and parents have of Technology and remove the gender bias often associated with the subject. The smart clean lines of the S+B Design Technology range promotes a more contemporary and relevant image of this exciting subject, but without compromising the durability and robustness demanded for working with resistant materials.

All furniture is available in a range of sizes to suit all needs and can be free-standing or with castors. Design Technology furniture has been developed to be multi-use and heavy duty. The range has a clean modern look to help provide a contemporary view of technology in its widest context.


The IT workstation for example is constructed in a way that would allow heavy CNC machine tools (which vibrate) to be used and function effectively. The Preparation Table, because of its strength of construction, to be used for realisation as well as its main function.

Design Life

S+B Design Technology furniture will withstand a 25 year life in a demanding environment. The robust construction and modern appearance facilitate the objectives of the modern educational technology environment.
