The idea to redesign the school desk was born after analyzing the products on the market for rural schools in Mexico. We needed to create a product that was affordable, resistant to extreme weather conditions and use. Another concern was transportation. It needed to be light and stackable in order to fit many of them in a single truck to be able to reach remote communities.
Independent seat and deskboard
Built-in notebook space
Back-rest hook for school bags
The result is a two-piece school desk with a rotating board that students can move depending on their needs. It is light and it can be produced in many colors, allowing the schools to choose a two color combination if needed.
The seat has a conical shape so it can fit on top of other seats for storage. It has a hook on the backrest so students can hang their schoolbags. It also has a pocket under the seat where they can store books and school supplies Both pieces are mass produced by rotomolding, an economic process that uses recycled polyethylene.
