Ten designers have tried to design new school desks for Haiti. These can be built on site and thus help the local economy. They are in wood, easy to built and cost nothing. The action has been promoted by HISPANIOLA Design per solidarietà. See more info about this here.

"Simple, flexible and fun. The wooden desks and benches are made without the use of any special techniques or tools, so children themselves can have fun putting them together. Endless combinations are possible: individual, rows, islands, L- or U-shaped arrangements. The seats are height adjustable; the distance between the desk and the seat can also be modified." - Lorenz • Kaz
