The “Vessel Desk” is a simple and qualitative child desk that plays with the codes of the archetypal school desk while at the same time projecting itself into the future. It also refers lightly to the world of wooden children toys with its little “vessel” that is both a graphic and playful modular element.

Hence, it is truly a mix of tradition and modernity.  When buying a desk one can chose from tree different types of “vessels” finished in several colors ( stained wood ), or in a natural oak finish. . Each “vessel” offers a different mix of functionality. The possibility to store pencils, pens, paperclips, rubber bands, papers, cards… or even smartphones and tablets…. depending on the element chose of course.
