Designed to provide learners with a unique opportunity to train and develop the skills desired by local employers, the new facilities feature the latest technology and cutting edge classrooms specifically suited to STEM subjects.

DESIGNER COMMENTS

Working with independent interior architecture & FFE specialists SpaceZero, the College required robust, good looking chairs available in colours that would match their interior scheme.

David Hales, Supply Manager at SpaceZero comments: “As ever KI delivered the right product, at the right time, at the right price. The Maestro chair is one we often specify where high density stacking, allied to a good aesthetic, is needed. The tablet option, used here, is another reason why Maestro was the preferred choice. The clever “clip on” system has proven itself time and time again.”

NOTES

Lightweight, comfortable and virtually indestructible, Maestro chairs are covered by a 10 year warranty. Stackable to 38 high on a transport dolly, they are frequently specified for large halls and assembly areas. The optional, removable tablet arm can be added for dynamic and space-efficient classrooms, eliminating the need for large tables. Its polypropylene seat shell is available in 20 standard colours, while the wire rod frame can be finished in chrome or a range of durable powder coatings. Upholstery options are available for the seat and backrest.
