Student Well-Being

“Rockford Public Schools and VS America have helped transform the way our students can and should see themselves! As amazing scholars that deserve the best we can give them.”  

– R.J. Kuligowski, 8th Grade Assistant Principal, Kennedy Middle School 

Taking care of students is at the heart of it all – and at VS, we know that study, work, and living spaces have a long-term impact on students’ physical, mental, and social well-being. We create agile furniture for K-12 schools, colleges, and libraries to engage and empower students and teachers. 

Let’s create learning spaces that embody dynamic flexibility, healthy ergonomics, and compassion. 
Our kids deserve it.

Movement increases engagement 
and learning

•    Passive sitting is actually dangerous 
•    Movement supports mental and physical development 
•    Activity is a high-yield investment
•    Movement as ADHD medication 
•    Fidgeting boosts the brain
•    More resources

High stacking capability

The stepped shape of the glides and the concave leg profile make stacking easy and ensure stability, while keeping the seat surfaces protected. Ten chairs can easily be stacked almost vertically on top of one another.

Comfortable however you sit

What is the right way to sit on a chair with a triangular seat surface? Whatever way you like! Stakki permits a wide range of positions, whether sitting towards the front, the side, the back, or at an angle. Users can sit on Stakki from every side and still enjoy the same ergonomic comfort. The chair seat has a small surface, but it is exactly the right amount to ensure all-round sitting comfort.

Exceptionally space-saving

At floor level, Stakki again takes up little space and can be easily pushed close together like the slices of a cake. Six chairs can fit around a circular table while leaving ample freedom of movement for the legs.

Safe & Sustainable

Stakki has been comprehensively tested for safety and passed with flying colors. It carries the GS “tested safety” label and also passed both BIFMA standards X6.1 (educational seating) and X5.1 (office seating). Designed with sustainability in mind, Stakki is made from a single part, and any production surpluses are directly reused for the manufacturing of new chairs – in line with VS’ rigorous environmental standards.
