Yakka (Work) Standing Desk - Small


A standing secondary school desk that is more than just a gimmick. The Small is suitable for one student.

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 the majority of one type for whole class setups, with a handful of the other type for focused individual or small group work.

To facilitate these different setups, the Yakka desks are very easy to move. The Small has three legs, one with a castor so a teacher or student can tilt the desk and wheel into a new position.

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.

These design details mean that in a classroom setting, the desks can quickly be arranged in countless organic configurations. This engages students and drives dynamic and self-led learning.

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