University of Oxford

Oxford, OX1

The brief

As a world leader in research across the social science disciplines, the facilities provided play an important role in the student experience and their learning outcomes. Working with TOP-TEC, the University has refurbished the IT Room located on the 2nd floor, reconfiguring it to support bring-your-own-device (BYOD), and no longer has individual IT equipment provided in the room. Rows of 3-seat power supply benches are arranged facing the front. This allows the room to be utilised for presentations and seminars if required, for which lecterns, height adjustable desks, screens and projectors are provided.

Our solution

Strive task chairs

Learn2 with Strive seat shells

The University’s brief for this space was to be collaborative, interactive, flexible and comfortable. KI’s Strive seating complemented these requirements perfectly - very comfortable and robust, the chairs were also selected for their 15-year warranty.

Simon Ferguson, Sales Director at TOP-TEC

The Learn2 chairs give the space an added element of reconfigurability. The chair’s clever design adds excellent functionality with its storage rack and generous tablet arm, and being able to specify them with matching Strive seats allowed us to maintain a consistent aesthetic throughout.
