King’s College – University of Cambridge

Energy efficiency and sustainability have been the driving force for King’s College’s recent student accommodation development at Cranmer Road,. The need for creating sustainable student living has resulted in the universities first Passivhaus project. We were chosen to help provide a wide range of furniture for the bedrooms, kitchens and communal areas. The furniture chosen follows the college’s ethos of looking to nature and the environment for inspiration.

Scandinavian inspired wooden design with the use of a clean white contemporary look creates a neutral palette interspersed with bold interior design choices of burnt orange and purple furnishings. The Oskar low back chairs are ergonomically designed to provide excellent lumbar support alongside offering strength and stability via their robust, one-piece design with elegantly curved plywood arms that not only make this chair a visually appealing addition to any room but one that can also withstand the rigours of student living.

In the bedrooms, alongside the Oskar low back chairs, is a range of desks and other cabinetry with a crisp white finish and plywood effect edging that helps tie this room together into a cohesive, calming space that benefits student well-being.

Our Rondo sofas also offer modern comfort, with the sleek chrome ski leg design allowing for easy cleaning,  with additional felt pads for ease of movement whilst protecting the flooring. The bright pop of colour (in Highland Aqua) of the sofas works well in conjunction with our Cumulus coffee tables, which were chosen in the darker Anthracite finish to compliment the  minimalist surroundings of the students’ communal space.
