the  neXt desk
Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

The common school desk has been at the centre of the traditional classroom since its invention during the Industrial Revolution.  An icon of educational practice itself, the desk is a static island for the student, staking out the individual ‘territory’ of the learner.  Arranged in neatly organized rows, the desk has emerged as a symbol for order, control and efficiency. This 13' tall wheel offers a vision for the next direction in education: one  of interconnectedness and collaboration.
