Seat of Learning: A design and development case-study

Post Adrian Burns

West Midlands’ interiors and lifestyle businesses are invited to a talk that launches an exhibition of a new range of educational seating.

This exhibition documents the design and development stages of the seating project. Designed by David Rowe and Richard Snell, this innovative range of products is designed to comply with the new European standards for school furniture and addresses the need for posture to be considered more fully in the design of pupils’ chairs.



The project was realised through a close collaboration between Birmingham City University, BKF Plastics Ltd. and Hille, a company with a well established reputation for the design of furniture for public spaces.
