C Series Desk and Chair Being Assembled
-- Children in many parts of the world face the challenge of trying to learn in classrooms without proper furnishings - at times even being forced to sit on dirt or cement floors. Unlocked is on a mission to help.
For each desk and chair set sold, Unlocked will donate an identical set to a school in need. A unique plywood design alows 2 desk and chair sets to be made from one sheet of plywood. Assembly is completed using interlocking joints and pressure fit, making the furnishings easy to flatpack, transport and assemble. Now a truck that could only transport 30 desks now carries 69, which is critical in impoverished areas with limited infrastructure. Designing products to fit this need while still striving to create items that can still exist in the online retail marketplace has resulted in uniquely beautiful and functional products.
