Power Delivery Solutions for Educational Environments ; for Steelcase

StudioFYNN recently completed a research and opportunity identification program for Steelcase Education Solutions. The project objective was to understand issues for power delivery and termination in higher educational environments and define new product opportunities by synthesizing the intangible and disparate elements of a complex problem into a tangible framework.

Secondary research techniques were used to analyze all types of environments and power delivery issues across higher educational domains. Current technologies were reviewed for their appropriateness as well as potential future technologies and what impact they may have on potential solutions

Technology assessments were combined with the user and usage patterns across various educational environments to develop product ideas along a chronological timeline.

The results of the project provided an in depth scenario map and preliminary product opportunity concepts.  This research was foundational to the development of the Thread product line and other potential products.
