Christian Kroepfl has designed an adjustable desk with varying heights that can grow simultaneously as its owner grows.

NIVOO is a sustainable desk for creative minds between three and 99 years old.

The desk is made of ash wood and coloured MDF panels. It is assembled completely metal-free and stiffened with cords and wooden screws.

All parts of the plug-in system of the legs serve different functions: dowels turn into suspensions for schoolbags, holes become fixation joints for shelves, foot hammocks or the canopy.

The desk can be even transformed into a children’s theatre.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
