ECAL students reimagine the school
chair of the future with RBM by Flokk
Innovative architecture, technology and design is shaping
the future of education, challenging the norms for those
creating learning spaces more than ever before.
Danish furniture manufacturers 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 todays traditional school chair, specifically for
children aged 6-12. A selection of these concepts will be
exclusively on display at Stockholm Design Week.
“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.
