“During the COVID-19 emergency, the Italian Education Ministry allocated funds for the replacement of old school desks. But what was to become of the outdated models?

By stripping the desk to its bones, the compositional elements became pieces of a new puzzle: the wooden top is smoothed, cut and reassembled to compose the morphology and type of the furniture; the iron structure maintains its support function.”
