Creating an open and stimulating school environment

Challenge and solution
Hatlane is the largest school in Ålesund and a true village landmark. Working closely with both client and architect, the greatest challenge was to find the exact right products to meet the school’s criteria & needs. It is a fully integrated school with open space premises where teachers and students utilize the same common social areas. The client also requested modern and inspiring furniture that encouraged both interaction and collaboration.

In order to meet the demands of a universal and inviting atmosphere, the student group rooms were made as flexible as possible in creating an active teaching environment with furniture that was flexible to refurnish whenever needed. Great emphasis was placed on finding colours that evoked the right kind of emotions for different rooms, with high focus on light, sound, flexibility and availability. EFG ONE task chairs were delivered together with EFG HideTech meeting tables and flexible EFG Izi Niveau desks.
