The brief
Kaplan needed to maintain their corporate image in the London college by supplying furniture from the KI Kaplan Standards programme developed in the USA. In conjunction with the architects, KKS Strategy, KI introduced new ranges and finishes into the scheme that had a more sympathetic approach to European aesthetics and tastes. Its listed building was refurbished on a rapid programme across four phases, under difficult working conditions.

Our solution

  • Perry chairs -Within the classrooms, KI Perry chairs were selected due to their unique frame articulation, stylish design, strength and variety of colours, from which Kaplan chose a dark blue. Perry is the perfect choice for Kaplan as the classrooms vary in size taking from 6-56 students with the subjects taught dictating different seating arrangements. Perry chairs are used with and without writing tablets classroom style and can be stacked on a dolly for ease of handling.
  • Maestro chairs - KI Maestro chair, a contemporary, light and comfortable stacking chair, featuring a chrome-plated rod frame and dark polypropylene seat and backrest has been used in the Student Lounge. Matching stools with polypropylene seats have been used for the higher tables and the computer bar.

What our clients said
“KI’s furniture has created a highly professional study environment for our classrooms and a fun and relaxing atmosphere for our student lounge. Students particularly value the flexible classroom chairs, which make sitting through a 3-hour lesson a much more comfortable experience. From the company’s perspective, we needed furniture which would continue to look good after being used by a large number of students month after month, and KI’s furniture fits the bill.”
