Yakka (Work) Small Standing Desk - Year 5-6 (1050mmH)

A standing primary school desk that is more than just a gimmick.

The Large is suitable for two children. The junior desks are available in year-group sizes, so they are proportionate to a child’s stage of development.

The Yakka desks are easy to manoeuvre. For the Large size, two of the four legs have castors so a child or adult 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.

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 a multitude of configurations, which drives dynamic thinking and self-led learning.

The benefits of standing desks are well understood. At Koskela, we have opted to develop separate seating and standing desks, to avoid moving parts that are liable to break. When ordering for a classroom, we recommend a majority of one type for whole class setups, with a handful of the other type for focused individual or small group work.

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