As part of an ongoing collaboration, students from world renowned Swiss art and design university, ECAL, have reinvented the school chair, with Flokk brand RBM. They will be shown for the first time during Stockholm Design Week 2020
Innovative architecture, technology and design is shaping the future of education, challenging the norms for those creating learning spaces more than ever before. Flokk brand RBM have embarked on a semester-long design project with students from world renowned Swiss art and design university, ECAL.
“What a great challenge for the students: collaborate with an important brand in order to create future experiences based on their experiences from the past! Back to school and to the future!” Alexis Georgacopoulos, Director of ECAL.
Based around the title, The Future of School Seating, the 1st year Master Product Design students worked with course leader and designer Camille Blin to explore alternatives to today’s traditional school chair, specifically for children aged 6-12. A selection of these concepts will be exclusively on display at Stockholm Design Week 2020.
“We tasked the students at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne to reimagine traditional school chairs and to design a product that fits seamlessly into the operating culture of future learning environments. We know that ways of teaching and learning are more diverse than ever before and we’re excited to show off some great concepts from the ECAL 1st year Master Product Design students – the next generation of super talented designers.” Oystein Austad, Design Manager, RBM by Flokk.
Located inside Konstnärshuset, a stunning and historical art gallery based in Central Stockholm, Education Reimagined invites visitors to experience an interactive exhibition of inspiring concepts presented by the students themselves.
Visitors to Stockholm Design week can enjoy a fascinating glimpse into how young designers envision education spaces of the future.
