Stackable Metaphor Series Feature Convenience, Stability

Last February, shared an article about a Sled-Based Chair from the Virco Metaphor Series. This week, we’d like to draw your attention to the most basic and fundamental of the Metaphor Series: 18″ Stackable Chairs.

You might call the 18″ Stackable Chair the core piece of furniture within the Metaphor Series and the reason would be simple. Virco’s Metaphor Series is about convenience and stability, so the moment you look at any product within the line of Metaphor chairs and desks, you’ll see that core, stackable chair rooted in the design.

When Virco introduced this as a new product several years ago, this is how they described their Metaphor Series:

“With a robust, full-perimeter tubular steel frame and a specially formulated polypropylene shell, Metaphor® classroom furniture combines strength and support for years of reliable service in K-12 schools. The shell’s deeply sculpted contours provide students with long-lasting comfort.”

“Thanks to a 12-high truly vertical stack for easier movement and storage of 4-leg chairs – and the ability to nest these chairs upside-down on desktops – Metaphor enables quicker, easier classroom cleaning. All Metaphor chairs and chair desks have earned GREENGUARD for Children and Schools indoor air quality certification. Like Virco’s best-selling ZUMA® Series, our generously proportioned Sage® furniture, and our exciting new Telos® product line, Metaphor models are designed by the award-winning team of Peter Glass and Bob Mills.”
