Designboom: Clever School Desk
nos designs clever, a lightweight stackable desk for mexican schools
after analyzing the products on the market for rural schools in mexico, local design studio nos has come to redesign the traditional school desk. aiming to create a product that would be affordable, resistant to extreme weather conditions and easy to use, the designers developed ‘clever’, a lightweight stackable desk with a seat.
the result of the project is a two-piece school desk with a rotating board that students can move depending on their needs. it is light and 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, and also features a hook on the backrest so the users can hang their schoolbags on it. the pocket under the seat allows the students to store books and school supplies.
