Pro chair, Konstantin Grcic 

Estimulación al movimiento

La silla Pro chair fue diseñada por Konstantin Grcic para la firma alemána Flötotto, y fabricada para ser utilizada principalmente en escuelas,  a partir de un estudio de investigación que recomendó las formas como estimulantes de la actividad, aunque la calidad y atractivo de la silla la convirtieron en un elemento de uso universal. La silla se destaca por su versatilidad y elegancia, son fácilmente apilables y transportables,  y se producen en tres tamaños distintos, con cinco bases de sustentación  diferentes y una gama de seis colores.

Memoria de los diseñadores

Starting to work on the chair, we tried to talk to (nearly) everyone who would have a stake in our project: kids, teachers, school janitors, procurement managers for school furniture, even insurance companies. We wanted to learn as much as we could about the characteristics of school chairs, about their production industry, and about the school furniture market. School furniture is a very national affair. Each country not only has its own norms and regulations but also its own school furniture industry. In Germany, 3-4 players dominate a highly consolidated market. Without outside competition, these companies don’t seem to have much pressure to innovate or implement the insights gathered in recent studies on school as a workplace.
