As part of the Malthouse development at King's School, Canterbury, Rigg supplied many items of bespoke furniture. The standard of workmanship throughout this international college is befitting of the Victorian heritage.

Commonly available school desks can be rather dull or brashly coloured. The models shown here were manufactured by Rigg in Birmingham to be sympathetic to the aesthetic and historical qualities of the space. They were used as general classroom tables and also as computer workstations. Some of the images show the Apple Macs in position with cable management behind. An example is shown where a "U" shape layout has been used, providing a clear view of a large interactive screen.

The desks were fitted with robust powder coated steel frames supporting birch plywood tops. The surface of white HPL contributed towards a bright, fresh interior whilst being easy to clean and durable.

As part of the project, custom shelving systems were also made for various areas. These were made to match the workbenches, creating a coordinated scheme.

The building and interior has a modern-rustic style including the performing arts and teaching space. The items installed as part of the fit-out were complementary without being overtly "vintage" in nature. Associated furnishings such as chairs were lightly industrial and in harmony with the characterful aged brick walls. The overall effect was to create a highly productive and comfortable teaching space for teachers and students alike.

This is one of many fulfilled projects of custom and regular furniture for independent schools.
