Why did this school district insist on THIS task chair?

Good design begins with understanding the client’s needs, making it our responsibility as commercial interior designers to consider and evaluate every request, even when the request seems out of place for the application.

Recently when a client specifically requested a chair built for intensive use, we dug deeper to answer the question, “Why did this school district insist on THIS task chair?” It turns out they had good reasons.

The school district design specifications included the 3142r1 High Back Chair from one of our partners, Concept Seating. This chair is designed for 24/7/365 use, and its typical users include law enforcement and customer call center operations.

With a design aesthetic seemingly more appropriate for the bridge of the Starship Enterprise, we thought it somewhat out of character for the school and its other furnishings. However, the school district wanted this chair for its durability, excellent ergonomics, and easy reupholstering characteristics supporting future style and finish upgrades.

They want to buy it once and use it for decades.
