I sit as I like it

Since the 1970s, most schools in Germany have been equipped with conventional school chairs made by ASS. These offer little potential for active learning, which is particularly important for children in order to promote concentration and receptivity – because the best sitting position is the one that leads directly to the next one.

We used the durable steel frame of this school chair as the basis for our design by replacing worn-out wooden backrests and seats with comfortable EPP moulded parts that can be used in a variety of ways. Children can remove the seats and sit wobbling close to the floor or convert the backrest into a small table. The chair therefore not only serves different learning situations, but also encourages active sitting. Our chairs are also resistant to rain and UV radiation, which makes outdoor learning possible.
