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 being able to reach remote communities.
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 school bags. It also has a pocket under the seat where they can store books and school supplies. Both pieces are mass-produced by roto molding, an economic process that uses recycled polyethylene.
