The tall design is perfect for music rooms, science labs, or art classrooms, and by offering a middle ground between the full lumbar support of a highchair and the simplicity of a traditional MDF stool, students of either preference will feel equipped to reach their full potential.
This stool was specifically designed for music, IT science, arts, crafts and design and technology classrooms where high seating is the norm. As such subjects can invite hours of seated work, stools help offer a flexible seating position and leg extension that helps students focus on their work rather than discomfort and makes it easier to get up and down without causing disruption. These stools will provide optimal comfort and posture to prevent students from straining or hunching over whilst they work, and ensure compliance with BS EN 1729:2016.
All aspects of this stool’s design are centred around maximising comfort and posture to enable longer periods of productivity. One of these aspects is the curved waterfall front, which positions the legs to improve circulation when working for a long time. Another is the footrest, which again supports circulation, puts less pressure on the spine and reduces fatigue of the hip flexors. The main benefit however is the addition of a minimal lumbar support at the rear of the chair. Although useful for determining the chair’s orientation and optimising space by fitting neatly under tables and stacking in sets of 6, its main benefit is once again posture and comfort.
Without a full shell at the rear, the restrictions of a highchair are eliminated whilst the benefits are retained. This design gives students greater freedom of movement and freedom in how they can position themselves, and considering students engrossed in practical work are unlikely to even use a full lumbar support, the minimal design is more than adequate for its purpose. Being unable to fully lean back also increases productivity, as well as safety through the prevention of weight imbalance that causes accidents.
A 4-legged design has been chosen for a more classic look, but a skid base alternative is also available for high wear situations and those requiring anti-tilt properties.
Each WSM stool is constructed from polypropylene – an easy-cleaning, hard-wearing material that can withstand frequent use and heavy weight. In practical environments where damage is likely, polypropylene provides unmatched protection and retains its look for longer, resisting spillages, scratching, denting and graffiti better than MDF alternatives.
The frame also provides durability with its robust crushed bent steel construction, which is encased in the polypropylene shell at the point of attachment. This ensures a sturdy, tamperproof build that will not loosen even with heavy daily use, movement or stacking.
