When we established Learniture®, we looked at other companies who had disrupted the status quo.
Companies like Aldi and Lidl in the food retailing sector, Uber who have transformed how we see taxis and how AirBNB have changed what we previously thought of as a B&B. We went back to basics: we looked at the education furniture market, and questioned how much of what we did, we did because we’d always done it that way, and how much of it was strictly necessary.
We did this because we truly wanted to make Learniture® available to the largest number of schools, colleges and universities by getting the costs down to an absolute minimum. Sure there will still be cheaper tables and chairs, but not that allow you to do, in your learning spaces, what Learniture® enables you to do.
We don’t have salesmen travelling up and down the motorways (but you can always ring us for help and advice) and everything we make will be delivered by courier ready for you to assemble yourself.
There aren’t dozens of colours or finishes to choose from, not because we want to be awkward, but because every time you add an option to something, you increase the amount of stock you need to hold and that in turn increases the cost.
We hope, as more and more teachers recognise the benefits of equipping learning spaces in the way we suggest, and Learniture® becomes increasingly used by schools we’ll be able to bring these costs down even further. That’s our aim: not to spend the summer holidays on a yacht in the Caribbean, but to be sending even more Learniture® to schools to enable as many students as possible to benefit from learning in a great and supportive environment.
