classroom furniture

  1. 1. Classroom Furniture 班級:工設二甲 學號: U918050 姓名:劉培弘
  2. 2. <ul><li>The 1<1 Intellect line of classroom furniture works to eliminate that </li></ul><ul><li>experience for today's students. By increasing the ergonomic performance </li></ul><ul><li>of classroom furniture, 1<1 hopes to reduce the &quot;fidgetfactor&quot; and increase </li></ul><ul><li>students' ability to learn. </li></ul><ul><li>● intellect 智力,理解力 </li></ul><ul><li>● ergonomic 人類工程學的 </li></ul><ul><li>● fidgetfactor 煩躁因素 </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>While ergonomics were a key goal of this line, functionality was equally important-the furniture </li></ul><ul><li>had to be strong enough to withstand the rough usage it was bound to receive while lightweight </li></ul><ul><li>enough to be moved easily, even by children. Because it was intended for the preschool through </li></ul><ul><li>adult school market, it had to be flexible enough to work for a wide variety of body sizes and </li></ul><ul><li>types. It had to be nestable and stackable; it also had to be adaptable to today's high-tech </li></ul><ul><li>classroom, with accommodations made for keyboards, mousepads, and wires. And visually, </li></ul><ul><li>because classroom furniture isn't replaced very often, &quot;it had to be simple and clean and kind of </li></ul><ul><li>timeless,&quot; says Scott Bosman, an industrial designer at 1<1. </li></ul><ul><li>● Functionality 功能 </li></ul><ul><li>● withstand 抵擋反抗 </li></ul><ul><li>● Rough 粗糙 </li></ul><ul><li>● Usage 用法 使用 </li></ul><ul><li>● flexible  可彎曲的 </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Initial sketches included a wide array of ideas for chair and leg configurations. Making the seat </li></ul><ul><li>and back out of one large piece of plastic turned out to be less cost-effective than separating the </li></ul><ul><li>two parts. Bending the legs so they crossed under the seat and screwing the shell directly onto the </li></ul><ul><li>frame proved weaker as wellas less distinctive than other solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>The designers also brainstormed ways to make the system adjustablein size, but that idea was </li></ul><ul><li>rejected when market research revealed that once the furniture was sized, it was never </li></ul><ul><li>changed.Says Bosman, &quot;Why have all these exposed holes and a butcheredup look when you can </li></ul><ul><li>have just one size that fits, and make four sizes? And costwise, it came out that we could do that.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>● wide array 電線配置 </li></ul><ul><li>● configuration 結構,表面配置 </li></ul><ul><li>● Frame 架構 </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Early in the process, marketing requested that the design team add the option of a personal bin -a </li></ul><ul><li>book box that slid out of the desk so students could easily access their own supplies. Design took </li></ul><ul><li>this idea a few steps further by imagining a lid for the box so that it could serve as a lap desk as </li></ul><ul><li>well. In the end, the lap desk concept wasn't pursued, but the storage bin was. The drawer holding </li></ul><ul><li>the book box can also serve as a keyboard tray, further improving the functionality of the desk. </li></ul><ul><li>The addition of built-in wrist rests and field-installable mousepads adds both functionality and </li></ul><ul><li>ergonomics to the desk. </li></ul><ul><li>● arry 配置 </li></ul><ul><li>● configuration 結構、表面 </li></ul><ul><li>● frame 架構 </li></ul><ul><li>● storage 儲藏 保管 </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The KI Intellect line of classroom furniture is designed to meet the needs of the modern </li></ul><ul><li>classroom. Its lightness and flexibility of design helps students and teachers reconfigure the </li></ul><ul><li>classroom; its ergonomics allow students to learn in </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Early in the process, the team had agreed on ABS plastic for the seat and back-to provide both </li></ul><ul><li>strength and flexure-and elliptical steel tubing for the legs. But during manufacture, 1<1 </li></ul><ul><li>discovered that high-quality, cost-effective manufacturing was more difficult to source than </li></ul><ul><li>expected. The seats and backs of the chairs produced by I<I's vendor in Poland were marred by </li></ul><ul><li>white marks; 1<1 eventually bought the mold and produced the ABS parts in-house. The team </li></ul><ul><li>invested in an expensive bending machine, but it required a lot of fine-tuning before it would </li></ul><ul><li>produce what the team envisioned. Welding the cantilevered seat to the frame took a lot of trial </li></ul><ul><li>and error, too. &quot;It was done by hand in the beginning,&quot; says Bosman, &quot;but the welds just weren't </li></ul><ul><li>looking like we wanted them to, so we finally got a robot that would do it very well, and it visually </li></ul><ul><li>looks very nice and is very strong.&quot; The team's attention to detail has paid off. As Rutter says, &quot;It's </li></ul><ul><li>all these little details that really convert the experience from just another chair into, 'Wow, I really </li></ul><ul><li>like this, this is nice stuff,' which has resulted in astronomical sales for 1<1 in this category.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>● manufacture 製造,加工 </li></ul><ul><li>● vendor 賣主 </li></ul>
