Case Study: Kenora Catholic District School Board, Ontario

The grade 7 and 8 department head of St. Thomas Aquinas High School, was told by students that they would rather study on the floor in the hall than in their chairs and desks in her classroom. So, she went to their School Board and asked to put area rugs and cushions on the floor in each of the 7 and 8’s classrooms. Before she knew it, she and several others were meeting with David Jakes (Designer and Education Leader/Planner) in Chicago and touring several furniture manufacturer showrooms to decide how they wanted to proceed with their new learning studios. Needless to say, staff chose VS America as the product they wanted to implement, including:

  • Hokki stools
  • PantoSwing-LuPo Forward-flexing cantilever chair
  • Compass-LuPo chair
  • Shift+ Thumbprint Stackable four-legged tables
  • Shift+ Fusion Flip Folding table
  • Shift+ landscape cabinets with seat modules
  • Puzzle free-form table
  • Puzzle upholstered lounge
