Beatley Library, Boston, MA
Designed to enhance critical thinking through collaboration and digital technology, the Beatley Library project neatly balances the requirement for solid, durable furniture with the flexibility necessary in today’s rapidly changing digital environment. While many people believe that the tangle of cords hanging from their desks is a necessary evil, the team at ModernGrain worked closely with the project architects and designers to integrate all power and data connectivity into the construction of each carrel. The finished carrels have a clean, uncluttered look, but have an easily accessible wire management space to facilitate future upgrades as technology and the needs of the library change.
