Virco - Metaphor Series

 edufurniture.com Introduces Metaphor 
     A quick overview of the new Metaphor(tm) Series by Virco tells you a lot about this great new product line for K-12 schools. With a strong full-perimeter tubular steel frame and specially formulated polypropylene shell, Metaphor has the strength to deliver years of reliable service in high-traffic classrooms. The shell's deeply sculpted contours provide the intuitive support to give students the long-lasting comfort they deserve. Thanks to a 12-high truly vertical stack for easier movement and storage, and the ability to nest individual chairs upside-down on desktops, Metaphor chairs enable quicker, easier classroom cleaning. Three distinctive backrest vents give Metaphor products an unmistakable resemblance to Virco's best-selling Classic Series(tm) models. The resemblance, not surprisingly, is intentional, since Metaphor was conceived by award-winning designers Peter Glass and Bob Mills as an updated sequel to the Classic Series, which has registered more than 47,500,000 units sold through 2006. Given the long-standing and ongoing success of the Classic Series, Metaphor underwent an extensive research and development process to insure that it would bring important ergonomic benefits to Virco customers. The Metaphor collection includes: 4-leg chairs with four seat heights; a selection of 4-leg combo units with two work surface sizes, an optional bookrack and an optional backpack hanger; two adjustable task chairs, one of which has a reduced shell size and a shorter adjustment range for smaller users; and an adjustable lab stool.
