One Size Rarely Fits all

Correct ergonomic seating can be achieved when a pupil’s chair suits their individual heights.

Body height and seat/table height have together been carefully correlated to determine six generic sizes to cater for various age-ranges throughout schools.

According to DIN EN 1729 standard – this serves as a good starting point, but ideally, each pupil within any specific age-range should have access to chairs and tables that can be quickly adjusted to suit his or her own individual height.

COMFORTABLE & ERGONOMIC SEATING PROMOTES BETTER LEARNING

Learners spend most of their school day sitting in their chairs, it is vitally important to have the correct seating to support a healthy posture and facilitate easy learning. During prolonged periods of sitting pupils have a natural urge to fidget but most school furniture is very rigid in design, restricting movement causing discomfort and distractions while learning, impacting academic attainment and physical well being.

The ergonomic Z frame chair the PantoSwing allows for movement while encouraging correct posture through its innovative cantilevered frame, which creates a gentle controlled back and forth motion, stimulating blood flow and increasing concentration.

We recommend this chair for classrooms, as clients have told us, they achieve 5 times as much work out of their students. One size doesn’t fit all, we custom order your chair in the colour of your choice and size to suit your school.

The hokki

Affectionately known as the wobble stool, wobbly stool, flower stool or mushroom stool by our loyal customers, The Hokki has been designed to eradicate the boundariesbetween controlled sitting and natural free movement.

Most dynamic seating has been designed to move in linear directions, however the controlled, yet multi directional movement of the Hokki provides a stimulating interaction allowing the pupils to continually shift posture or “rock and Roll” during lessons. This is proven to engage your core muscles increasing blood flow and oxygen throughout the body and brain.

We have been told by some teachers that they have noticed a 30% increase in concentration in students who use the Hokki stool during their classes.

Make a Space OR Flexible Seating

KCSA furniture promotes movement and is shift-able enabling different furniture configurations throughout the school day.

With fast implementation of changes and a diverse range of flexibility, teachers and students can design their own individual learning environment, free from the restrictions of normal fixed furniture solutions.

The Third Teacher

“The Third Teacher” a term coined by the Reggio Emilia educationalist, Loris Malaguzzi – is where the learning environment becomes the third teacher to a child. First teachers are their parents & educators, the second is their fellow peers all these factors influence a child’s educational achievements. Therefore, school architecture design and furniture contributes significantly to children’s educational potential.

The company’s aim is to be able to offer customers products which have been manufactured in the most eco-friendliest way possible, assuring that the manufacturing of products is in accordance with the strictest environmental standards – from the purchasing of raw materials, to across the entire production phases and through to the recycling of used materials.

This system ensures that the internal company processes at the factory are consistently geared towards absolute quality assurance. Our school furniture carries the GS symbol, the official certificate of tested safety in accordance with the German guidelines and standards.
