As schools are creating classrooms that facilitate active learning, the design of furniture complimenting space planning is a critical dimension to the retention of information. As mentioned in “Do Welcoming Classrooms = Better Students?” Ergonomics and environment play a critical role in student success:
- “I feel relaxed. When I’m relaxed I’m more ready to learn.”
- “Studies indicate that high-quality classroom environments help children feel safe, secure, and valued. As a result, self-esteem increases and students are motivated to engage in the learning process.”
Intellect Wave’s unique flexing back provides exceptional comfort and permits a certain degree of movement that results in better attentiveness and learning retention. The Intellect Wave classroom chair has a unique shell design that has all the proper curves to support functionality and ergonomics in the classroom.
Backed by KI’s 15 year warranty – and engineered to withstand tough classroom use, Wave exceeds industry standards for durability. Elliptical tubing provides superior frame strength and lightweight, textured poly shells resist scratching, fading, chipping and denting.
The long lifetime of this collection is a green story in itself, but Intellect Wave is also Level Certified and SCS Certified.
