CHAIR UP, WITH


COLOURFUL, STIMULATING INTERIORS


Interiors specialist KI shares its latest case study, find out how they have brightened things up for a Manchester-based school, using some vibrant new furnishings.


Cheetham CofE Community Academy, is a larger-than-average-sized primary school, with 540 students aged between three and 11 years old, based in Greater Manchester. Working closely with the school, office refurbishment consultancy firm Whitespace was briefed to transform the blank space of a new building into an inspiring, modern interior.


Key to the success of this project was the designing and furnishing of each classroom with the same footprint, whilst remaining flexible. As with the majority of educational establishments, the school was looking for a durable, cost-effective, stackable seating solution, therefore KI's Postura+ chair with its vast colour range and 20-year warranty was a natural choice.


Whitespace furnished the school with approximately 250 Postura+ chairs in complimentary colours of Lime Zest, Jet Black, Iron Grey, Slate Grey and Grape Crush, creating a visually stimulating and exciting learning environment. Postura+ high chairs in matching Iron Grey and Slate Grey were also selected and specified with 610mm sled bases to sit alongside higher tables in the classrooms

Whitespace's knowledge of the education sector meant that they could provide high-quality interior design and furniture to meet the school's needs and budget. The result: furniture and a layout that enhances this new building.


“THE SCHOOL WAS LOOKING


FOR A DURABLE, COST-EFFECTIVE,


STACKABLE SEATING SOLUTION.”


KI and Whitespace are proud to have been able to help this exceptional school to provide an inspiring and flexible environment within which the children can grow and develop.


Nicola Young at Whitespace commented: “We proposed the Postura+ chairs to the school as, having used the product many times before, we knew it to be robust, reliable and practical as well as offering an excellent colour selection to enhance the interior design scheme. Offering a comprehensive range of sizes also gave us flexibility


to use the chairs throughout the age range of the students.”


KI’s Postura+ chair was the first one- piece polypropylene chair introduced to the UK education market in 1996. The chair is ergonomically designed to promote good posture and provide exceptional comfort. Injection moulded in the UK from 100% recyclable high impact-resistant polypropylene, Postura+ is available in 16 standard colours, with custom colours available. Strong, durable and light, they can be vertically stacked to 12 high.


The lower back lumbar design ensures perfect ergonomics whilst the graduating seat curve supports 'perch' and 'full' sitting positions and the unique waterfall edge of the seat provides comfort. The angled back legs prevent the chair from rocking or slipping and will not twist or distort. Postura+ is fully BS EN1729 certified with high fire retardancy and comes with a 20-year warranty. The chair is anti-static and stain resistant, helping it to stay cleaner for longer.
