Our next installment in Revit content for secondary schools focuses on furniture for student dining facilities.

Our next installment in Revit content for secondary schools focuses on furniture for student dining facilities. Like our previous collection of classroom furniture, this collection has been developed in partnership with industry expert Greta Jonsson to help us identify the most relevant and useful products. The collection contains Revit families for a circular table, rectangular table and bench set, wall mounted analogue clock, mobile tray storage rack, food waste trolley, multi-purpose swing bin, cafeteria chairs and a high stool.

Seating

The collection contains a variety of seating families to cater for most cafeteria and school dining scenarios. These include two chairs, a bench and a stool from manufacturers AJ Products, Office Furniture Online, Furniture At Work and Direct2U.

The classic plastic cafeteria chair from Office Furniture Online is created from adaptive geometry and as such does not have 2D for plan view.

The other three families all have 2D for plan view and three levels of detail in 3D view. They have an average file size under 600kb and are available with numerous frame and seat materials.
