Tyumen State University
The E5000 and ST12 integrated seat-and-desk systems—both by Orlandini Design—were chosen for the classrooms of the Tyumen State University in western Siberia, which was founded in 1930 and has more than 27,000 students. Thanks, in part, to its participation in a government-led programme aimed at developing the higher-education system, the university’s sites have undergone major renovation and modernisation work. The two seat-and-desk systems have contributed greatly to the restructuring of the classrooms in line with the changing needs of the institutes of Economics and Finance and Physics and Technology. In the L300 hall of the Institute of Economics and Finance, the largest room on the campus, wooden E5000 study desks with a foldaway tip-up top and electrical cable ducts, were installed in tiers. The ST 12 desks for the Institute of Physics and Technology, whose one-piece system was chosen to pair with HL3 chairs, were also installed in tiers.
