As part of refurbishment for the Faculty of Business and Law, the client brief was to uplift the current tablet chair specification for the classrooms, calling for something more professional and corporate. Paul Durbidge of London Metropolitan University working with Emergent Crown found the perfect solution in KI's Torsion on the Go! nesting chairs with their generously sized folding tablet arms.
The faculty's rich red colour scheme was mirrored in the bold red upholstery of the chair's seat and back, while the chrome and black of the chair frame were complemented with grey flooring and details.
Paul Durbidge, Space Planning & Relocations Manager at London Metropolitan University said:
"The KI Torsion on the Go! the product looks the part. The chrome and black frame have that corporate look. The size of the chair is bigger than the standard product we previously used in our classrooms, making it more comfortable and the slight reclining mechanism for the back adds to the comfort. The size and mechanism of the tablet were unique to the KI product when compared to others; some had similar-sized tablets, some had similar folding mechanisms. Only the KI product bought it all together and ensured that the finishing and styling looked professional."
Torsion on the Go! Seating from KI, designed by Giancarlo Piretti, is an innovative, mobile, nesting, flex-back chair which addresses movable seating requirements for teaming, training, and informal conferencing - great for impromptu group work in educational environments.
With a unique large folding and nesting tablet arm, ingenious flip-up seats and castors, the chairs can nest together for compact "out-of-the-way" storage. Torsion on the Go! is an intelligent approach to the requirements of multi-purpose learning environments. Exceptional comfort is provided by a smooth back articulation created by a unique patented torsion spring mechanism.
