Perch - Primary School Furniture

“Perch” is a result from a 2 year research masters with the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland by Simon Dennehy.
Active sitting is central to the design. Continuous movement, higher sitting and working, fully adjustable furniture and a patented flexible seat pan contribute to the overall design. Students are not built to sit still. Movement is key to physical and psychological development.
