Modern learning environments

Smart learning and innovation environments

The right facility and furniture solutions create peaceful work environments, improve learning results and contribute to the health and well-being of all members of the learning community. In our furniture solutions for learning, we combine Finnish expertise in education and healthcare, technology, circular economy thinking and design. This comes to life e.g. in our GESS Education Award winners Kivikko and Nook.

Caught up in the whirlpools of hybrid pedagogy educational institutions from kindergartens to universities need to re-design both learning processes and spaces. We at ISKU are creating modern and smart learning and innovation environments with pedagogy driven design. Pedagogically versatile and sustainable solutions allow not only for a variety of learning, teaching and guidance styles, but also for the specific needs of different subjects. Creative innovation platform reinforce students’ own initiative and inspire them to find, try and create new solutions together.

To get an overview of how our solutions bring the best of Finnish education to learning environments, we created the ISKU Active Learning Proof of Concept. Click here to download the Stories of Learning Environments Designed for Purpose.

Enhanced infection control with material choices

A school environment is a typical example of an environment where infections are easily spread. The cleaner the learning environment, the lower is a risk of contamination and an infection. ISKU has developed a concept where infection control is enhanced with utilizing antimicrobial features in furniture solutions. Together with good hand hygiene and regular cleaning, ISKU+ antimicrobial solutions are proven to reduce the ability of microbes to survive on surfaces having the potential to even halve students’ short-term absenteeism.

In addition to schools such as Kuuhankavesi School in Finland, ISKU has provided antimicrobial furniture all over the world. Antimicrobial solutions contribute to the safety and well-being also of the students of the Al-Basma British School that prides itself on a high quality education and pastoral care for all students.
