Taatila School is a prime example of a Finnish local school with pupils from kindergarten children to sixth grade.
The design project of the facilities and furniture for the Taatila School relied heavily on the needs of users: the school staff participated actively in designing the facilities and finding ideas for furniture solutions at every stage of the project. At the beginning of the design process, the staff studied learning environment solutions in various reference projects. Next, the quality of the products was examined in a showroom and during a visit to the Lahti factory. Ideas and wishes were refined into choices in the course of joint workshops targeted at finding the best furniture solutions to support different styles of teaching and learning.
