KI products were the best option

Adam Goodayle, Senior Project Designer of Red Apple Designs commented:

“Red Apple Designs were the FF&E consultant for this project. Working with the client we specified the KI Postura and Maestro chairs for Leigh UTC. KI products were the best option because they are a well-known manufacturer of commercial and educational furniture which are of the highest quality and durability. KI delivered a total of 600 Maestro chairs and 75 of these also had tablets added to them. We selected different shades of Maestro chairs, so that they complemented the rest of the colour scheme chosen for the school hall. We also specified 200 Postura laboratory stools, all the stools are 700mm high fitted with plastic seats and sled base metal frames.”

KI’s Maestro chairs were specified for the main hall in black, blue grey and cottonwood (white) polypropylene colours. Maestro is a contemporary, light and comfortable stacking chair making it a fitting choice for this particular space; its sleek appearance and colour choice makes an interesting and striking contrast against the backdrop of yellow and slate black colour scheme of the main hall.

    I really love your article and I cannot agree more Postura chairs are our number one seller. What makes them so popular is the fact they were the first one piece polypropylene classroom chair on the market. Our customers also report they are superior to other one piece classroom chairs in terms of comfort and ergonomics. They come in a wide range of vibrant colours which now for 2017 includes Sugar Plum a beautiful deep purple colour. They also have the longest manufacturer guarantee which currently is 20 Years!
