Pono is a disassembled chair for school for children between 6 to 10 years old to be constructed directly in the class.
As the educational process is shifting to digital learning, Pono wants to bring more ‘ hands-on’ schooling methods.
Thematically, Pono is about practical teaching and contact with a changing and growing material. It is made of four nesting parts of local wood to be assembled with easy joints and constraints adapt for this age range of abilities’ exploration.
Playful shapes and proportions present the chair as a new character in the classroom environment, providing differentiation in the learning process.
