Design of an adjustable table : In collaboration with Form o Miljö (English)
The aim of the project is to redesign an adjustable table in collaboration with the company Form O Miljö from Stockholm, which develops, produces and markets high-quality furniture and interior design for public environments .
The table is part of a biomechanical project developed by the company. It´s focus is school environments and designed for the students. The idea comes from the problems observed in children while using electronic devices or study in the current tables and a later ergonomic study about it.
The bachelor thesis consists of looking for a new design that fits in its market, catches the users interest and meets his or her needs in order to be successful. Therefore, it is a project that has been carried out from a human-centered design approach.
The result is a table adjustable in height thanks to the lifting system implemented, that has a drawer to store stuff and a tilting support for electronic devices. All its characteristics makes this new desk an innovative product in the market that fulfils the users’ requirements and solves the problems analyzed.
