Creating flexible learning experiences


During 60 years of providing quality school furniture, Woods Furniture has been instrumental in changing the way students learn.

Established in 1953, Woods Furniture is Australia’s leading designer, manufacturer and provider of high quality durable educational furniture.

“We create flexible furniture that inspires and enables students to fulfil their learning potential and empowers teachers to achieve the best teaching outcomes,” Tony Rogers, Director of Woods Furniture, said.

Woods Furniture currently supplies flexible, innovative, 21st century educational furniture to schools in every state throughout Australia.

“All schools have access to the Woods Furniture website, where they can search, browse and submit online requests for quotes, including a full selection of products and colour options,” Rogers said.

“We are learning outcomes focused – we not only offer an extensive range, but we also provide schools with the knowledge to integrate it into their environment to best meet individual learning needs.”

During 60 years of providing quality school furniture, Woods has been instrumental in changing the way students learn.

“Our strategic partnership with VS, a German company and arguably the world’s best designer and producer of ergo-dynamic and flexible school furniture, ensures Woods is always at the forefront when it comes to innovation and design within the Australian education system,” Rogers said.

With its own research and development team, Woods is constantly expanding and refining its line of products to ensure they constantly provide current furniture designs, relevant for today’s school environments, teaching practices and pedagogy. During the process of developing new products, Woods integrates design options that offer the best possible value over the life of the product.

“By incorporating our design philosophy with products that are produced to Australian Standards in an environmentally sustainable way, we are creating furniture that not only enables students to reach their full learning potential, but also contributes to a better future for them and the planet,” Rogers said.

Woods has client managers in each state across Australia to provide support, knowledge and understanding to equip schools, students and teachers with flexible options relevant to 21st century flexible learning.

Taking a “hands on” approach, the Woods sales team travels to regions all over Australia to work with educators and design the best possible learning and teaching outcomes.
