Relief Desk BOX

iF concept design award 2014

iF concept design award 2014

Although a good education is so important to help people escape from a life of poverty, African children often have little access to such things as desks to make learning and studying easier and more comfortable for them. They usually just have to sit on the floor. This wooden packaging has been designed to be used to send other relief items and supplies, such as household articles and hygiene items, to Africa. Once these items have been received and distributed, the packaging can be easily taken apart and reassembled to provide simple desks for school children.

"This design makes full use of the wooden package, it not only saves material, but also creates new values for African children."
