In collaboration with teachers and educators, Gonzagarredi creates tailor-made projects to suit every type of educational establishment, opting for the co-design method when possible. Our furniture is designed to encourage the personal learning and training activities of each individual child, depending on his or her level of biological, psychological, social and cultural development. Both furniture and accessories are child friendly and are made with the highest quality, safety and nontoxic materials.
The materials we use range from natural wood to warm soft matting with colours that reflect the results of the most recent scientific research. Colours unconsciously affect our moods and so we choose neutral shades that create a sensation of cleanliness and space, with the addition of little touches of colour that allow the individual products to transmit warmth and personality.
Natural wood and desaturated colours are intentionally used to prevent colour from intruding into the child’s perceptive experience to an excessive extent. Since they are so delicate, the shades do nothing to detract from the colours used by the children and their teachers. Thus educators can “personalise” the classrooms and add colours to highlight the activities in which the children take part as they explore their world.
The furniture, structures and accessories feature shapes designed with the utmost attention to their use by children. They are designed to transmit positive, reassuring and maternal messages.
Be it natural or artificial, light becomes a substantial part of the environment and must be a perfectly integral part of the furnishings. Besides making objects easier to perceive, correct lighting in a room can turn even the furthest corner into a comfortable, attractive, mysterious and safe place.
Our furniture is designed around usability, ergonomics, constructional simplicity, environmental sustainability, low environmental impact and style. It is designed and made for children and is the result of having analysed the specific characteristics that form the product itself.
Along with our tried-and-tested engineering planning abilities, these characteristics have enabled Gonzagarredi to become a leading supplier of school furniture, classroom supplies and nursery school furnishings.
