As part of a 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 Durbridge 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.
Torsion on the Go! tablet arm chairs - These innovative, mobile, nesting, flex-back chairs addressed requirements for movable seating that facilitate teaming, training, and informal conferencing. With its ingenious flip-up seats and sturdy castors, the chairs can nest together for compact “out-of-the-way” storage. Designed by Giancarlo Piretti, Torsion on the Go! was lauded with a prestigious Best of NeoCon Gold Award. The university's rich red colour scheme was matched by bold red upholstery.

The KI Torsion on the Go! product looks the part. The chrome and black frame has 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 was 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.
