Learning environment: Aleksis Kivi primary school

After a long and extensive renovation, the five-story Aleksis Kivi primary school, standing on the slope of the Brahe field, was returned to the use of students in 2022. Sistem designed a completely new furniture plan for the school.

The modernist building was completed in 1934, and the additional wing in 1966. Efforts have been made to restore and adapt the original style of the building in all aspects of the design. The architectural and historical value of the school has been taken into account in the loose furniture, especially in the corridors and common areas, in the student furniture and in the color design. The tubular frame chairs designed in the 30s, the side tables designed by Aino Aalto, and the classic stools match the style of the building's architecture and are still contemporary and appropriate furniture for the school environment. The furniture of the teaching facilities meets today's requirements with its functions, and at the same time matches the colors and shapes of the old school building.
