In Mexico, as in almost all Latin American countries, there are many processes that still struggle to be standardized. In this project we attacked two of those main processes: recycling and standard school furniture.
By using the premium recycled material that Nike Grind makes available as a base, and in combination with other recycled materials (cardboard and plastic yarn) it is possible to create standard low-cost school furniture that meets the basic needs of children in public schools .
The current state of design of these school furniture is very poor. They are usually made of wood or plastic, both of very low quality, which makes them almost impossible to repair (very expensive) and their durability is very limited
The general idea is to make standard parts that are easily assembled (final product) and interchangeable (replaced) according to the client's final needs.
It is very important to make clear that the design of this student furniture is based on two fundamental premises:
low cost|affordable price &
robustness|high quality final good
