Yakka (Work) Seated Desk - Large


A hardwearing secondary school desk that is joyfully different from the rest. The Large is suitable for two students.

The Yakka desks are easy to manoeuvre. For the Large size, two of the four legs have castors so a student or teacher can tilt the desk (much like a wheelbarrow) and wheel into a new position. Within minutes you can switch from individual work to group work, or whole class activities.

Koskela utilised biophilic design principles, which are based on a connection to nature, to develop the Learn by Koskela range. There are no straight lines or right angles.

The tops – triangle-shaped for the small and trapezium-shaped for the large – feature a generous corner radius. In a classroom setting they can be arranged in countless organic configurations, which drives dynamic thinking and self-led learning.

The select range of finishes also mimic nature. Colours are inspired by the Australian landscape. Birch laminate is also an option for the tops. The overall effect is students are happier and healthier, which speaks for itself!

Yakka translates to work, and the word originates from the Yuggera Aboriginal language in Brisbane.
