Convertible Library Carrel

Milder Office had designed study carrels which could transform into flat tables for the MIT Stratton Reading Room several years before I joined the studio. They were well received but had stability issues and could feel shaky.

- Design Brief -

There was a fair amount of interest in a product with this functionality, especially from libraries, so we resolved to create a new design with better stability. Primarily these would be used in multifunction rooms. The carrels would lay flat for group activities or presentations, and open to allow focus and privacy for individual work such as test taking.
