KI’s Strive chairs chosen by Middlesex University for StoneX Stadium

StoneX Stadium in Hendon, North London, is home to the Saracens Rugby Club. Shared with Middlesex University, its newly built West Stand provides a research/training facility that houses the MDX London Sports Institute as well as the Nursing & Midwifery and Natural Sciences Faculties.

The centre includes teaching areas specifically designed for biomechanics and strength and conditioning, as well as, physiology labs, clinical simulation labs, and community-based simulation rooms. BPR Architects designed the interior fit-out for these rooms while the furniture was specified by refurb and fit-out specialists, Wagstaff.

Richard Store, Consultant at Wagstaff said, “We specified the Strive chair for its versatility and durability. Stackable even with castors and with a mix of upholstery applications, Strive allowed us to meet the requirements of the various unique settings whilst maintaining a degree of continuity across the whole building.  The flexible backrest provides an element of comfort, and the new Change-Up tablet is one of the most durable of its kind compared to many alternatives and is reflective of KI’s tested pedigree within the HE market.”

The furniture needed to be of a standard that reflected the state-of-the-art facility, but also encouraged movement. After being reviewed, KI’s Strive stacking chairs were seamlessly incorporated into many of these spaces.

All the chairs are on castors, which gives the classrooms plenty of flexibility. Non-upholstered chairs were used for clinical areas for ease of cleaning, while the rest were upholstered in either Camira Era CSE43 Late, or Chieftain Just Colour Greyfriar.

For one of the classrooms, the Strive chairs have been fitted with the KI ‘Change-up’ tablet arm. This provides students with an accessible worksurface for notebooks or laptops. The tablet also pivots 45 degrees to allow plenty of space to manoeuvre in and out of the chair.
