And the Winner Is…

As part of the i2e Campus Transformation, the NYU-Poly community had a chance to weigh in on the choice of furnishings for various locations around campus during the Poly Pods kickoff event in February. The pods will create an impromptu setting for informal gathering throughout the community and lend a dash of vibrant color to under-utilized space. The week-long voting campaign took place in person in the lobby of the Jacobs Academic Building or via an online survey. Participants made their selections from 3-5 flexible furniture groupings.

A curvy lounge chair, a rectilinear bench with a low-profile back rest and a generously sized coffee table appealed to the majority of voters. The color palette voters favored included blue, orange, red, gray and purple. The final furniture groupings, to be installed throughout campus this spring, will feature combinations of the favorite pieces in the most popular hues.
