EMOJI™ Seating Addresses Sensory Needs While Keeping Learning Spaces Active; Ready to Order Now

ARLINGTON, Texas – February 6, 2018 – Paragon Furniture, Inc., manufacturer of K-12 educational furniture that sets the pace and place for learning, today introduced EMOJI™ Seating. The new seating is shipping now and will be shown in the Best Buy Education booth (#533) during the 2018 TCEA Expo, February 6th through 8th at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.

In every classroom, there’s a flurry of stimulus and activity, and humans can lose focus. In such an energized space, emotions rarely sit still. The new EMOJI™ line of Seating was designed with the physical and emotional well-being of children and adults in mind.

“Human perception of comfort is affected by every aspect of our environment: what surrounds us, how we behave, the tech we touch, and everything we sense and feel,” explained Mark Hubbard, president of Paragon Furniture, Inc. “EMOJI™ Seating features and details were designed to generate a sensory response. The chairs come in bright primary colors and neons to increase energy, creativity and activity, as well as in muted colors to promote relaxation, calmness, and focus. The “textured zones” are used to hold a person firmly in their seat while the rubberized bumpers and quiet casters eliminate ambient noise.”

EMOJI™ Seating helps create a delightful experience for children and a refined, performance-driven experience for adults. Each piece is designed to support us in how we move and find comfort at various ages as well as how we evolve from seeking playfulness to focus. Three sizes cover all ages and hold characteristics specific to the physical and skeletal needs of each.

  • Seat back flexibility
  • Lightweight and mobile
  • Slotted for aeration
  • Multi-posture and direction support

At every age, EMOJI™ Seating is designed to support us. The Child version is playful and soft, with a built-in smiley face to elicit a connection to joy and happiness. While the Adult chair’s support structure more closely mimics the grown-up spine and pelvis.

The furniture is lightweight, mobile and stackable making it ideal for any active learning space. All the EMOJI™ chairs have seatback flexibility with a shell design that allows for fluid posture change and spontaneous movement. At the same time, the perforated seat patterns are slotted for natural aeration.

EMOJI™ Seating is available and shipping now from Paragon Furniture.
