sketches of lectern ideas
The initial ideas that I had for the lectern were focused mainly on the comfort of the presenter. I tried to think about what it is like to be behind the current lectern and what I would like to see instead. The shape that evolved is of a folding motion. It is a continuous linear shape that creates a top work surface as well as a seat on one end of the lectern for the presenter. There is a freestanding magnetic surface that stands beside it - or can be moved - for hanging presentation boards. There is a sunken computer docking station as well as a sunken area for the projector to go where it would be flush with the top surface.
