Design is a very dynamic thing, but sometimes, tradition and trend tend to place it in a box, forcing certain objects and items to take a certain shape if they are to serve a certain function. Nowadays, however, many designers and creatives are turning this premise on its head.
The piece combines the function of a desk and a chair as well as storage in a unique manner as opposed to the typical ‘Desk-in-front-seat-behind’ approach. The design evokes the sense of the child riding a pony while learning as opposed to sitting in a chair in front of a desk, thus, making the design more fun and interactive.
