Frist Friend at School

Developed in collaboration with Flokk in Norway. Companion is a lightweight and stackable chair designed for ages 6-8. It is integrated with a rope handle to allow children easy to carry by a single hand and adapt to a changeable and dynamic learning school environment.

The new environment can be very unfamiliar and frightening for children who have just left home and entered school. The idea of Companion is to become the first friend of the children at school/ in the new class.

Companion also can increase children’s sense of belonging to the school. The friendly and stable shape of the chair gives a sense of closeness and protection.
