SHIFT+ DYNAMIC SCHOOL FURNITURE

SHIFT BASE ELEMENTS

Shift + base encompasses all the table elements of the design system. They  form the base furniture always needed for daily lessons. Every student is different and learns differently, Shift + base supports high degrees of individuality by easily attaining different configurations that accommodate those needs.

 

TABLES

Student Stackable Desk

The sides of the desks are either convex or concave to increase the combination potential and allow configurations outside the usual rigid patterns. The desks are able to be stacked and moved if need be. (Stackable up to six desks, mobile with up to three desks.)

GROUP FOLD-ABLE TABLE

The freeform table top offers a variety of unique combinations. The table top can be rectangular in shape or be an S shape for collaborative work. These mobile group tables can be quickly manipulated to form a variety of clusters for any teaching style. Freeform tables are versatile as they can be folded away or pushed to the side, to free up a room and save space.

Teachers Height Adjustable Desk

 

The teacher’s desk is height adjustable, it can be moved easily on its castors. This allows teachers to stand, teach or move with the desk. Teachers are able to lower the desk to assist students, giving the teachers freedom to be versatile while teaching.

Half Round Group Table

This mobile five-legged group table has a flat and semi-circular side. Because the Shift + system has a shared radius, the half-round group table can be integrated in different student desk configurations. The straight side gives the perfect opportunity to place the table against the wall. The table can be equipped as a mobile counter work station, with a monitor arm and CPU that can be integrated.

This table can be pushed together to form a number of unique desk shape combinations. Castors on all four table legs ensure trouble-free mobility, the tables can be rearranged by students of all ages. The table cannot be stacked or flipped.  

SEATS

Comfortable Cantilever Chair

The PantoSwing-LuPo cantilever chair has a comfortable air-cushion seat shell which offers comfort throughout the long school day. The seat surface tilts forward and backwards according to the way weight is distributed. The chair creates a gentle rocking motion which allows for increased blood flow and concentration.

Playful Freedom of movement

 

The Hokki – the innovative active stool offers freedom of movement in controlled conditions. Its non-slip rounded base enables it to move in all directions when sat on. The stools base is light in weight and can be ordered in a range of different colours.

 

Dynamic Seating

The PantoMove-LuPo swivel chair is height-adjustable and features a 3-D tilt mechanism. As weight is shifted the seat surface tilts forward, backwards or to the sides – allowing students the freedom of movement required for good posture development and sustained concentration. The ergonomic designed air-cushion seat shell offers a high degree of comfort.

 

Pure Relaxation

The cloud beanbag offers pure relaxation while being sat in. The beanbag allows for the body to change sitting posture every now and again. While giving ergonomic support it helps accommodate a person to sit in a number of positions. The beanbag is scotch guarded and fire retardant and the “beans” are in a separate bag so it is easy to clean.  

Shift + Landscape

With Shift + landscape storage and seat modules, learning landscapes and differentiated areas within the classroom can be created swiftly and easily. Storage space at different heights means that areas can be separated to varying degrees and create new and innovative environments. Seat modules can be arranged in different seat heights to accommodate all ages, as well as varied heights create inspirational spaces for learners.

Straight or round storage modules

Mobile storage modules come in two heights. They can be integrated in many different combinations and together with the seat modules it forms visually separated group areas and thus facilitate lesson differentiation. The modules can also be equipped to accommodate storage boxes. Connection magnets and lockable castors on the side ensure the arrangement is stable, but easily taken apart and for this reason always flexible.

Straight or round seat modules

Straight or round seat modules are available in different heights. They provide useful base elements for creating less formal group seating areas. The storage module can be directly used to design a free seating landscape.

Straight teacher’s storage module

 

Shift + Landscape provides a mobile storage module with a lockable unit for teacher’s needs. As a freely movable module it may accompany the teacher for use in different areas of the classroom.
