Nursery & Foundation

A well designed classroom can create an environment where young children are excited to learn and explore. We consider colour psychology, furniture safety, functionality, storage solutions and sensory elements providing an ideal classroom setting.

Primary Education

Primary school interiors should be vibrant and visually appealing using a palette of bright cheerful colours to stimulate creativity. When designing for Primary we provide lightweight and durable seating and tables and furniture on castors to allow for versatile and interactive activities within the classrooms.

Secondary Education

Effective interior design focuses on creating spaces that are functional, visually appealing and conducive to learning. Our design team provide ergonomic, sustainable and versatile furniture products to accommodate various teaching and learning styles. We combine these furniture products with our Vector fitted furniture range integrating modern and interactive technology solutions.

College & University

Furniture selection is a multifaceted task which involves creating spaces that encourage collaboration, creative learning solutions and well-being for a diverse student facility. We design interactive and adaptable classroom layouts for various teaching styles factoring in eco-friendly and sustainable furniture products. Whilst including comfortable collaboration and social areas and privacy pods for quiet areas for working.

Our contribution to a greener future.

When undertaking any new Educational project we review all existing legacy stock furniture and provide remanufacturing options and solutions for all suitable furniture products. This results in lower spend for the client and most importantly meets all recycling and eco efficient targets, reducing our waste-to-landfill footprint.

The Ministry of Furniture installation and factory teams work hard to keep emissions very low. Dismantling and remanufacturing desks and office chairs can result in up to 80% reduction in transportation emissions and divert up to 8 tonnes of ‘material waste’ going to landfill.

Ministry of Furniture’s remanufacturing capabilities are excellent, providing remanufacturing solutions for desking, seating, office chairs, storage lockers and even carpet tiles. Working on a large Educational project our team removed old school desking and remanufactured all viable materials to produce bespoke, modern wooden storage lockers.

If you are interested in discussing any remanufacturing options for your project, please get in touch with a member of our sales team who will be happy to help and can also provide a site visit.
