World Premiere of Most Innovative Educational Furniture Platform

Grand Rapids, MI, Vanerum•Stelter and VANERUM Group are pleased to announce the global launch of the inventive Opti+ seating and desking platform. On January 11, 2011 the partners celebrated the worldwide virtual launch of the Opti+, which will be followed up with its European premier on January 24, 2011.


For the first time in the history of educational furniture design, all of the elements required to reach the ideal ergonomic posture within the classroom are being incorporated into one comprehensive product line. Opti+ combines a forward sloping chair with unique front contoured edge and a patented desk with integrated footrest, which increases adjustability and comfort. Opti+ is the perfect solution for the 21st century classroom setting.

"Today's educational environment is shifting away from the traditional approaches of sitting in rows, facing forward and listening to lectures to a more dynamic and collaborative social environment. Now students are expected to work in groups, express their ideas and thoughts and learn alongside the instructor. This changing paradigm creates new demands upon the furniture within the classroom. Increased mobility, adjustability and durability are at the forefront of these demands" says design team leader Johan Heyvaerts.

These days, well into the 21st Century, many countries around the world are questioning their existing educational system: does the traditional 19th century model still suffice and if not, how can we be more economically performant in a globalizing world and yet preserve local culture?
