At Woods Furniture we believe that education is of the utmost importance, not just for the children of today, but for our world tomorrow. This fundamental belief has driven our team, for over half a century, to study how children learn from a behavioural, ergonomic and cognitive perspective, and to develop furniture that is flexible, adaptable and stimulating. At Woods, we’re for flexible learning.
