Ark Academy

Wembley, London HA9

The brief

With its extensive curriculum and variety of activities, the school's facilities required a range of seating types including height adjustability, swivel functionality and mobility for their new rooms.

Our solution

KI's iconic Postura+ chair and its extended line of stools and task chairs, all selected in Grape Crush, allowed Ark Academy to maintain a consistent aesthetic throughout, while ensuring the best quality products were being procured.

Postura+ classroom chairs - Tried, tested and proven since 1996, the Postura+ chairs used in the new classrooms have an unsurpassed reputation for comfort, durability and practicality - helping students maintain comfort and concentration.

Postura+ task chairs - For the new IT rooms, Postura+ task chairs is the perfect match again in matching Grape Crush. The ideal companion for these dynamic learning facilities, these chairs offer the same ergonomic benefits of Postura+ chairs, with the added functionality of a gas lift. 

Postura+ stools - Intelligently created from the same injection mould as the task chair's seat shell, the Postura+ stool shells with low backs were mounted to 610mm-high frames for use in science labs. Their integrated bag hook allows students to keep bags, blazers and other personal objects off the floor, eliminating trip hazards.

Maestro chairs - selected in the dark grey Flannel colour. This ergonomically-designed, high density stacking chair is ideal for the school hall, quickly assembled into any configuration required. With over 200 chairs stacked on just 8 transport dollies, the Maestro chairs provide a compact solution to mulitfuncitonal spaces such as this.

As the school had already selected KI's Maestro chairs, the adoption of the Postura+ range was a natural fit. The family of Postura+ products allowed the school to perfectly colour match and maintain their vibrant purple scheme throughout.
