What is Shift+?

It's a range of flexible classroom furniture, designed to meet the modern demands of differentiated teaching and learning styles. Shift+ enables the configuration and reconfiguration of classroom furniture layout in many different ways. In short, it's the ultimate flexible classroom solution!

What are the benefits?

Move quickly and efficiently from group work, individual or paired work, private study and traditional frontal lectures – or a combination of all of these activities. Shift+ allows teachers to teach and learners to learn in a way that best suits their individual needs.

Is it easy to use?

Yes it is. Shift+ utilises well-constructed, light-weight tables and chairs designed to be moved and configured by teachers and students alike. A single classroom layout can be adapted multiple times throughout the school day whenever required, quickly and efficiently.

PantoSwing-Lupo

The PantoSwing's dynamic seat encourages regular changes in sitting positions, which has been shown to increase the attention of students. With a frame made of bent, powder-coated steel tubing and a seat shell made of double-walled textured polypropylene, this chair takes durability to a new level.

PantoMove-Lupo

The PantoMove chair is height-adjustable, making it easy to quickly adjust the seat to individual requirements. The patented 3D rocking mechanism offers even greater dynamic sitting by allowing the seat area to react to every change of weight and leans gently forward, backward, or sideways.

Shift+ Base | Freeform Teacher Desk

The Freefrom Teacher Desk has a curved top that fits all other Shift+ product curves, so it can nest with other desks and tables in an unlimited set of configurations.
