We’re better learning environments
Our goal is to create and support your vision of a better learning environment by offering quality, modular items that can easily adapt to your teaching and learning goals. As we enter a new era of learning where collaboration and cooperation drive innovation, education environments need to reflect this change.
Thoughtful, well-designed spaces invite new ways of interacting. By working with us to make meaningful choices, community stakeholders at all levels are beginning to create new education paradigms.
Our furniture and classroom designs support students in thriving in their work, play, and the ways they learn best. Our products encourage children to trust and discover their ideas, abilities and creativity by constructing an environment that supports active learning.
We work with educators to create beautiful, inspiring and calming learning environments.
Message from our CEO
To our community,
The Natural Pod team and myself are and always will be committed to creating the most healthy, beautiful learning spaces that welcome and inspire students and educators. Although there is still some uncertainty within education, I truly believe that by staying in a place of creativity we can support each other through this time. Students still need us to to create inspiring spaces where they can thrive, now and for their future. By creating learning environments at the intersection of pedagogy, sustainability and great design we can do just that. Educator’s wellness also needs to be at the center of decision making. Educators need to know that we care about the environments where they work and hold space for our children. Through collaboration and open, honest conversation, we can navigate any challenges and find real solutions, together.
Please know the whole Natural Pod team is here to support you however we can.
Bridgitte Alomes, CEO and Founder
