Recognizing the positive effects of good posture on comfort and productivity,
Smith System has
Plato Seating line that promotes correct posture while allowing for easy
movement and collaboration while seated.
Designed to meet European requirements for ergonomics,
features high lumbar support to reinforce the curvature of the spine and help
students sit up straight without forcing an inflexible position. This support
combined with Plato Seating’s large, flat seat pan enables students to rotate

“Ergonomic classroom furniture is more than an adjustable desk or a flexible
chair; it’s student furniture that fits and supports the body while enabling its
myriad movements and activities,” says Bill Risdall, vice president of marketing
for Smith System. “The Plato Seating line provides the right amount of rigidity
to brace the back without getting in the way of movement, ensuring furniture
comfortably enhances – and doesn’t hinder – individual work, project-based
learning, group activities, and everything in between.”
Plato Seating also features a cutout in the chair back, which provides
ventilation to keep backs cool, and can be used as a handhold for portability.
Priced to fit school district budgets, Plato Seating comes in numerous
configurations, including Stack Chair, Stool, Rhombus Arm Chair, P-Tablet Arm
Chair, Adjustable Chair and Adjustable Stool, each available in 17 designer
colors. To assure the look of comfort isn’t misleading, all Plato Seating
options are available in three shell sizes (18” A Shell, 16” B+ Shell, 14” B
Shell), each tailored to meet varying body measurements.
