bdesk / Children's Furniture

bdesk
bdesk

The eco-friendly and simple bdesk is designed for children ages 3-6. Our primary design objective is for children to see furniture as a canvas for imagination. The overall shape and dimensions allow for a variety of playtime configurations. Each chair can be tipped forward, into an easel position. This orientation is ideal for drawing without the bounds of a desk. The body of the bdesk is constructed primarily of corrugated cardboard, which makes it 99% recyclable. The bdesk is designed in a way that allows the surfaces to be replaced with new cardboard panels after heavy use, which is ideal for preschool and kindergarten classroom settings.
