The architects write on their site that the "wide variety of wire-framed furniture pieces can be mixed and matched into various modular formations, stimulating the students to figure out the many functions that are offered in these configurations."

Apparently, having to figure out those configurations is what helps students concentrate on their environment. With the large numbers of students with ADD or learning disabilities here in the U.S., whether this particular design proves to really help kids over the long haul is something educators are certainly going to be interested in.
