The winners of the D&AD Student Awards 2012 have been announced! Kronospan sponsored and helped judge the Furniture Design catagory, the brief being to ‘design a desk or work surface that will enhance the learning experience for a young student’. With the use of laptops, computers and mobile devices more common, and with this an increase in poor posture, this was a real challenge for the students.
Giho Yang has created an ingenious desk which can be adjusted to both reading and writing positions, allowing the user to sit in a more comfortable and natural position.
Chiung Wen Chang designed a modular system, where the desk can be joined to others in a range of shapes, creating a more communal learning environment, and at a height appropriate to the young user.
Both designs are fantastic solutions to the brief, and we certainly look forward to what these talented designers have in store for the future!
