ONGOSchool - active learning in motion

People have been made by Mother Nature to move. The same can be said when it comes to the brain. Movement supports the flow of blood in the body, and coordinated movements improve the nerve system’s functionality. Which leads us to the essentials of the ONGO®School: It fosters movement while sitting. This is achieved through the use of a rounded foot, a fixed seat, and the elimination of a backrest.

When developing ONGO®School, not only did we consider the requirements for movement, but also issues such as sustainability, price, and, of course, design and ergonomics. For example, to meet the need for sustainability and price, we’ve made the foot of sustainable material and rely on simple components.

The underside of the base plate has a soft, 100% recycled coating. The plate itself is made of an innovative composite material made of wood and plastic and is available in 3 colours. Ergonomics are also catered to: the comfortable edge, which makes ONGO®School easy to grip; the rough seating surface to ensure the child does not fall when teetering; and the large foot (39 cm/15 in.) diameter, which allows for plenty of movement while providing stability.

ONGO®School is available in a range of refreshing colors and height adjustable gas spring in regular and tall.

The high-quality craftsmanship that has gone into the making ONGO®School and its timeless form meet the highest requirements for sustainability. Like all ONGO® products, ONGO®School also contributes to a positive environmental footprint by being made in Germany
