The new Zuma line of student desks from Virco (www.virco.com) enables educators to mix and match features to create the perfect classroom desks. The Zuma series offers ergonomic, environmentally responsible construction that features six fixed-height and adjustable-height chairs, two sled-based combos, and an array of student desks with large work spaces that can accommodate a laptop and a textbook. Work spaces come in five different shapes, including square and trapezoid. The seven chair varieties include the reverse-cantilevered Zuma rocker that is specially designed to encourage both relaxed and attentive seating while delivering better back support. Finally, Zuma desks come in 16 different color choices to match with any classroom.
