Konfurb Fly chairs at Craighead Diocesan

Craighead Diocesan is a school for young women for Years 7-13, offering boarding and day school, situated in Timaru, New Zealand.

Craighead Diocesan School were inspired by the John McGlashan College dining hall refurbishment in 2021, following in their footsteps they worked with Metalon, a local commercial furniture manufacturer, who managed the renovations.


Individual seating and smaller tables give them the flexibility to rearrange the furniture into multiple layouts for different events.



Metalon replaced the existing tables and leaners with laminex topped tables with a plywood-look, making them durable and wipeable.

The old fixed long bench seats were replaced with Konfurb Fly Sled Barstools and Konfurb Fly Sled chairs with black shells with black powder coat frames. The Konfurb Fly Series merges comfort, by sleekly mirroring the shape of the human body, with crucial durability for daily hard-wearing use.

The barstools and chairs come with glides to protect the heritage wooden floors and prevent marking. 

The new individual seating of the Konfurb Fly allow the school to cater for meetings and functions with multiple layouts and change the look and feel of the space easily and quickly.
