RIGG is a UK manufacturer of high quality, contemporary furniture and has a number of clients from the education, office and hospitality sectors.

Their broad customer base means that Rigg is uniquely positioned to share experience from commercial clients with schools and colleges. The result is designs for educational facilities that are fit for purpose as well as attractive, with more unusually styled products than those found in the average educational catalogue.

For years Rigg has made packages of furniture for high-end workplace installations, but then realised that the education sector was deprived of this kind of service.  The company’s hands-on approach to manufacturing allows clients to pick-and-mix from the regular range of products and also request custom made pieces. A tables and seating project for Goffs Academy in Cheshunt is an example of a small but considered mixed package.

At the same time Rigg produces numerous standard models such as Quad and Synk tables while the bespoke route is great for reception desks and storage. Rigg has made and delivered many furniture packages over the years, some of which are featured here, with others in the case studies section.

It’s worth noting that outdoor furniture is also supplied by Rigg. Specific features include appropriate species of timber and corrosion protection for metalwork. Items manufactured for outdoor use Rigg supplies to educational clients have galvanised and powder coated steel framework.

Upton Hall School Sixth Form Centre

For the new Sixth Form Centre Fitout Rigg produced a variety of table and bench sets in addition to a bespoke up-and-over high becn table for tall stools.

Prince's Mead Independent Prep School

Long Dining tables and benches were specified from the Rigg Synk range. The items were installed into a newly built dining facility by Re-Format Architecture with Acheson as the contractor.

Lord Wandsworth College

As part of the new dining hall construction project at Lord Wandsworth College, Rigg Synk tables and benches were specified. They are organised in rows, created a strikingly ordered appearance. The surfaces are of high pressure laminate, easy to keep clean and available in many colours.

Cambridge 6th Form Centre

In keeping with the student age range, a mature selection of furniture was needed. We aimed for a casual ambience, as in a café popular with sixth formers. Rugged character tops and industrial style frames were specified to create an “urban” feel.

Sevenoaks School

The table used in this project is from the Rigg QQAD range. It is a great component in an educational fit-out as looks good but is practical, with plenty of leg room. In-house manufacturing enables many colour choices with the option of some fabulous tops.

Kings School: Malthouse

The architect specified a number of pieces for the refurbishment of the Malthouse International College building. Pieces included bespoke shelving, computer workstations and desking. We chose design and materials to complement the characterful heritage interior. For the exterior Iroko timber panels are attached to a robust frame for longevity.
