KI’s Hatton chair is the perfect fit for hybrid learning environments As part of a refurbishment project for Dutch secondary education school, Projectum Inrichten B.V. were instructed to create a hybrid learning environment that supports innovative pedagogical methods where students can work on their own or in several groups; the concept of the space was to focus on the wellbeing of students and teachers to inspire them during studies. KI’s Hatton chairs were specified by interior designer Marloes Miltenburg for three of the new learning squares. The chairs were chosen as their design complemented the environment, whilst providing functionality and comfort. The elegant, streamlined silhouette of these chairs is created with a 100% recyclable, one-piece injection-moulded polypropylene/glass fibre blend. Its built-in UV protection makes it suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Strong, comfortable and light, they are stackable and the subtle curved backrest features an integrated grab handle to make the chair easy to move around and quickly reconfigure a space.
