Pro is a versatile new chair design, ideal for use in schools, by the German designer Konstantin Grcic.

“Pro” is a new chair by German designer Konstantin Grcic for the German furniture manufacturer Flötotto.

Currently on show at Imm Cologne 2012, the chair has been designed such to encourage the user’s freedom of movement by making provision for different sitting positions.

The shell of the seat of the S-shaped form is made entirely from polypropylene. The seat can also be attached to different bases, including a C-frame made of tubular steel, four-legged frames also made of tubular steel or a sled-based frame in tubular steel.

With the height of the chair easily adjusted and lightweight, the Pro chair is ideal for use in private or commercial interiors. Other features that add to the versatility of the chair include the fact that it’s available in six different colours.

The Pro chairs were originally developed for use in an educational environment, with the S-shaped design based on research about active sitting in schools.

A series of Pro chairs have also been specifically designed for use in schools. This range is available in three different sizes to cater to the needs of growing children.
