Postura+ in custom purple gives Rhyl High School’s new facilities a unique identity
 
Rhyl High School’s new £25m facilities opened in April 2016 after many years of planning and preparation. The three-storey building, constructed by Wilmott Dixon, has achieved an ‘excellent’ BREEAM rating - a dramatic departure from the dilapidated, old buildings now being demolished to make way for new sports facilities. The super-school will eventually accommodate 1,200 students aged 11-16. 
 
Surrounding a stunning atrium, the school has been designed to feature both traditional and vocational facilities such as a hair salon, laboratories, workshops and construction area. The furniture selected by the school was essential in maintaining a consistent colour palette throughout. Shades of purple, grey and green are sophisticated and uplifting in the bright, airy, light-filled interiors. 
 
Working with Godfrey Syrett, KI created a custom purple range of Postura+ chairs, task chairs and stools to help the school realise its vision. Postura+ EN5 chairs were provided in 3 colours - over 1,500 in custom purple, along with smaller quantities of ash grey (187) and ink blue (68). A total of 100 Postura+ task chairs in the matching custom purple can be found in the IT classrooms. Over 300 Postura+ stools, also featuring the custom purple seat shell mounted on 685mm metal frames have been selected for science, art and design facilities. 
 
Claire Armitstead, Head Teacher, Rhyl High School, comments: “The chairs set the theme of our schools. The colour allowed us to really engage with our plan to rebrand our school. The chairs are light, easily stacked and comfortable and cheaply and easily gave us an identity.” 
 
KI’s iconic Postura+ range is manufactured in the UK and can be selected in custom colours to suit any school’s requirements. As seen at Rhyl High School, this custom colour matching service can be extended to include Postura+ task chairs, stools and high chairs. A minimum order quantity of just 100 units can be ordered, incurring a small surcharge. For orders over 500 units, no surcharge applies.
