The Spaces of Storm

Spaces in Storm

Storm is meant for all students and staff in Malmö University. Preferably in cooperation with friends around us. The more who use Storm the merrier and if it’s utilised in a fun and innovative way, even better! Storm is located in Malmö University’s building Gäddan at Citadellsvägen 7. 

Storm consists of three rooms. A big workshop-area perfect for seminars, workshops and other creative meetings, a smaller pitch arena for presentations and a third room called the Kitchen. The Kitchen is ideal for shorter meetings or to get some work done. Note that the Kitchen is only bookable together with one of the other rooms. More info on how you book Storm here.

Stora Stormen – Workshop Area

The room is equipped with everything you need to make a creative atmosphere possible. In the Big Room you can find: 

  • 12 tables that are easy to move and fold 
  • 48 chairs in four different colours
  • 3 big walls with magnetic whiteboard material 
  • 2  projectors that can show parallel screens or double screens
  • Other workshop material such as fun props 
  • Blackout curtains
  • Sockets from the wall and a rig in the ceiling
  • A movable wall-furniture with whiteboard surface, cork wall and magnetic plate
  • A Smartboard on wheels perfect for shared notes or drawings

How would you like to set up? 

Below are som examples on how you can furnish the Big Room to your liking. Please remember to have the time/people for setting up before and rig down after the event.

Colouring

Furnish the room with six tables. Four of the tables have the same coloured chairs, the other two have mixed coloured chairs.  The two tabled with mixed coloured chairs allow for active exchanges and breakdown of groups. Wonderful solution for workshops.

Movie- or Wifi sitting 

Traditional sitting with chairs in rows or a U-shape. Why not one colour per row? 

Place the chairs in a circle, a conversation where you can see everyone involved creates a sense of participation and a good conversational climate. Use a Movie- or Wifi sitting for a panel talk or when pitching.

Lilla Stormen – Pitch Arena

The room has a built-in staircase furniture with different levels and big pillows to sit comfortably on and is shaped like an amphi-theater. It can fit a maximum of 40 people, depending on how tight you would like to sit amongst yourselves. The recommended sitting is however 15-20 people if everyone wants their own space. The stairs allows for a more relaxed and informal dynamic as opposed to the bigger room in Storm. 

The room also offers: 

  • White board wall
  • Projector
  • Electrical sockets in the staircase and in the panel by the window

The Kitchen (Köket) 

Köket is not a bookable are but you are most welcome to sit there and use it if you have booked any of the other two rooms. The Kitchen has two big raisable tables  in the center of the room fit for 20 working spaces.

The Kitchen also offers: 

  • Cutlery, glasses, mugs, pitchers and plates for up to 20 people
  • A dishwasher
  • A coffe machine with over 10 different beverages 
  • A Microwave oven
