The renowned art and design university offers its students learning environments that are responsive to variety of teaching methodologies. Some departments encourage group work by providing a open plan studio setting with furniture that is easily reconfigured to suit different modalities. To that end, the Critical Studies Department relies on our T-partitions (mobile whiteboards), mobile storage partition units, and worktables.
Other programs, for example illustration and graphic design, foster individual development, and need to provide their students with private work spaces.
Milder Office also furnished office spaces for MICA faculty and administrators.
Credenzas are configured in widths up to four modules at desktop height. Our tall credenza features a double top for additional storage. Pedestals can be outfitted with drawers, doors, open storage and files in letter, legal, and lateral formats.
Have a more than four pedestals in mind? Credenzas can be built to your preferred size.
