Movement in the classroom
The Pro chair was developed by Konstantin Grcic and Flötotto on the basis of current studies on "Active Sitting". His goal: to promote the pupils' willingness to learn and to support the pedagogues in flexible teaching.
Today's classroom has long since become a dynamic space in which children and adolescents move in a way that corresponds to their physical and motor development processes. More and more often, health and well-being are promoted through the targeted use of motion-controlled teaching methods, which has a positive effect on attention and concentration.
A basic prerequisite for the flexible use of the classroom as a multifunctional place of learning is the use of furniture designed according to ergonomic aspects of movement. They enable uncomplicated modifications and help to quickly create new learning situations. The use of all possibilities in the room creates free space in the classroom. And this changes into a learning culture in which weaknesses can be reduced and strengths built up.
The Pro chair and table family has been designed precisely for this application and allows freedom of sitting and thinking.
Of course, the tables and chairs of the Pro Collection by Flötotto can not only be used in the classroom but are at least as suitable for the use in the children's room at home.
Chairs with C-frame
At first glance, the Pro chair with C-frame looks like a classic school chair. With its narrow backrest and round seat, it also allows a high degree of freedom of movement. The backrest adapts flexibly to the back and thus offers good support in daily use.
Since the backrest moves with changes in the sitting position, the spine is strengthened and the back muscles are strengthened. Thanks to the slender shapes of the Flötotto Pro chairs, they are also ideal for sitting upside down or sideways on them. Pro therefore does not specify a seating direction, but allows a wide variety of seating positions - 360 degrees all around.
The base frame consists of precision spring round steel tube bent into a C-shape with firmly welded cross bracing of round steel tube under the polypropylene seat shell. This is covered with a slip-resistant, matt texture and has a hard-wearing structure on the back.
The sizes Pro 6 and Pro 7 of the Pro series by Flötotto are optionally available with an upholstered seat cushion and armrest. However, the seat cushion cannot be retrofitted due to special drill holes and should be ordered in advance. The chair is supplied with universal plastic glides as standard. Felt glides are also available on request.
Thanks to its substructure, the Pro chair with C-frame is not stackable, but can be raised on the table with anti-slip protection.
We will be happy to advise you on individual configurations for the Pro chair.
