First opened in 1990, El Limonar International School (ELIS) in Murcia, Spain, teaches children from age 3 through to 18. It follows the national curriculum for England and Wales, as well as preparing students for Spanish University.
The school recently expanded and developed a new campus which comprises of six buildings; four for teaching, one for administrative purposes and one is a new multi-purpose examination and assembly hall.
The fit-out of the expansion followed the ELIS 'green' philosophy with solar heating systems, LED lighting and solar thermal protection, so it was important the furniture chosen would be in keeping with this ethos.
"We chose KI’s Postura+ chairs because of their robust nature, their varied colour choices, and their ergonomic design. We also used KI's Maestro HD chairs in some of the more collaborative work areas as their lightweight design makes them easy to move if we need to reconfigure a space." - Design team, Federico Giner
Postura+ One Piece Chair – 100% recyclable and provided with a 20-year warranty, Postura+ fit with the school’s green philosophy. It was specified in various colours to fit-out a wide range of spaces - 20 classrooms, the Assembly Room, Student Room, the Teacher’s Room, Art and Music Room, Cafeteria, and the Computer room.
Used by millions of students every day, Postura+ promotes good posture and provides exceptional comfort. Strong, durable and light, they can be vertically stacked to 12 high, meaning they can be easily cleared away to make space when needed.
