Flexible and reconfigurable environments that can be easily adjusted to accommodate student needs are becoming necessary while planning learning spaces. As mentioned in School Structures that Support 21st Century Learning:
- School and classroom design should accommodate diverse learning needs. Space should be large enough and furniture and other classroom objects should be easily reconfigurable to allow multiple learning activities to occur simultaneously.
- Space should be designed in anticipation of evolving learning needs, as both student populations and the relevance of specific subjects change over time.
- Flexible learning spaces allow for interactions and collaborative work, which are fundamental to the development of several 21st century skills. Such skills include: leadership, communication, teamwork, and interpersonal skills
In order to support these 21st century needs, flexible learning environments must be supported by lightweight flexible furniture.
