Cheetham CofE Community Academy, is a larger than average sized primary school based in Greater Manchester. With a blank canvas and working closely with the school, Whitespace was briefed to create a modern inspiring interior.
Designing and furnishing each classroom with the same footprint whilst remaining flexible was key to the success of this project. As with the majority of education establishments, the school was looking for a durable, cost effective, stackable seating solution, therefore KI's Postura+ chair with its vast colour range and 20 year warranty was a natural choice.
Postura+ chairs - approximately 250 chairs in complimentary colours of Lime Zest, Jet Black, Iron Grey, Slate Grey and Grape Crush, were selected throughout the building, creating a visually stimulating and exciting learning environment.
Postura+ high chairs - a dozen high chairs in matching Iron Grey and Slate Grey were specified with 610mm sled bases to sit alongside higher tables in the classrooms.

We proposed the Postura+ chairs to the school as, having used the product many times before, we knew it to be robust, reliable and practical as well as offering an excellent colour selection to enhance the interior design scheme. Offering a comprehensive range of sizes also gave us flexibility to use the chairs throughout the age range of the students.
