Truly ergonomic, dynamic school furniture for improved posture and well-being
We really care about healthcare, education, and well-being and have established ‘Perch’ to innovate & design new, disruptive, technologies and products for these sectors. We are industrial designers, striving to become a global leader in the design of ergonomic task furniture.

With extensive knowledge of the physiological requirements for task work, we continually challenge ourselves to design the best solutions, for the active human body. So, here’s what we have done so far. The effects of incorrect task furniture have very serious long term health repercussions. Schools around the world are equipped with furniture that force students to sit still, in discomfort, every day, and we’re here to fix that! We have designed an innovative school furniture solution which promotes upright and more dynamic working postures.

This patented furniture reduces slouching, neck strain and discomfort, while encouraging healthier posture, better core muscle development, and improved learning capacity. We have a proven record of innovating for primary schools and are developing more products for secondary and third level, as well as task furniture for adults. We have strong international partners, who are commercialising our core IP and research. So watch this space, we’re here to make a difference.
