Downview™ Visual Display Option

In 1988, NOVA introduced a revolutionary new classroom furniture design which recessed a computer monitor below the worksurface. By doing so, the user could now view the monitor with a natural downward gaze, similar to the natural position someone would be in if they were reading a book. With a computer monitor below the worksurface, the line of sight between students and instructor improved while also maximizing work space. This new design would revolutionize the classroom environment globally.

The evolutionary and space saving Downview™ houses your monitor beneath a tinted tempered glass view port and utilizes an adjustable monitor arm to secure the monitor below the worksurface. Optional Privacy / Glare Visor is available for added privacy and to help reduce any glare from overhead lighting.
