The writing pad chair that makes the classroom a safe space

Pad Chair arises from the reinvention by Alegre Design of the classic writing-pad chair of Federico Giner, a manufacturer of school furniture with more than a century of experience.

This reinterpretation has prioritised the comfort of the student and the new needs of educational spaces, where the emphasis is on communication and teamwork. Maintaining the product philosophy of Federico Giner, this product is loyal to timeless design, resilience, durability and resistance to the passing of time.

Its seat, designed ergonomically, thanks to decades of experience, is manufactured from highly scratch-resistant plywood with a low refractive index.

In the Pad Chair, the design systems of the chair’s writing pad have been designed to maximize its stability and support, thanks to an aluminum injection part with safety rails that prevent fingers from getting trapped.

This technical innovation gives the writing pad the strength and functionality of a static desk, but with a dynamic nature that makes the classroom flexible. The ergonomics of sitting has been redesigned, proposing new curves that provide the user with greater well-being during classes.

At Alegre Design, we have analyzed what students and teachers are hoping to find in classrooms and have identified the needs of educational spaces for the upcoming school year.

The Pad Chair is the result of years of research, development and investment aimed at increasing mobility within the classroom, so that each user is responsible for managing the space and the distance between the different study stations.
