The McCabe Digital Library at Swarthmore College supports a range of student-centered activities: a lounge, eating nook, kitchen, and flexible study and lecture space.
The lecture area is outfitted with several dozen Flip-Top tables that can be arranged for group work or as a lecture hall. In addition, the Flip-top tables can be stowed away to open up the space for other activities as needed. To further support student work, there are several mobile markerboards and a mobile storage partition where supplies are kept.
Cava Architects developed a wall panel system that allows the space to be partially or fully closed off from the rest of the library.

Cranston Public Schools commissioned Fielding International to devise a district-wide master plan that would “transform their aging building stock into modern, responsive learning environments.” Building on our work with Fielding Nair for the Chappaqua School District in New York, Milder Furniture worked closely with the architects on the much-lauded pilot project for Eden Park Elementary School.
Fielding International specializes in designing schools where learners thrive. And we know that students thrive in environments that promote flexibility.
Similarly, Milder Furniture designs products that give students and teachers the flexibility to reconfigure classroom setups and encourage collaboration. Solutions include storage units with mobile carts for lessons on the go, maker furniture, and products that serve multiple functions.

Client: Rob!nhood Foundation
Architect: 1100 Architects
1100 Architects came to us with the concept of creating a standardized library shelving system that would feature two ‘hinge’ element that would allow the shelf elements to be connected at different angles. The ‘Bookworm’ elements could then be configured (grouped) in different ways, curving through the space, to match unique site conditions for each of the five library spaces.
The five public school libraries were installed as part of the L!brary Initiative sponsored by the Robinhood Foundation and NYC Department of Education.
The system is flexible and allowed for tall stacks, counter height areas, seating areas and even passages. Each box has a laminated central divider and is accessible from both sides.
Milder Office’s design-for-production approach maximized efficiencies and ensured ease of installation. Milder Office produced the components in upstate New York, and assembled in New York city as a means of lowering shipping and delivery costs for the project.
