About this product
A hardwearing secondary school desk that is joyfully different from the rest. The Small is suitable for one student.
The Yakka desks are easy to manoeuvre. The Small has three legs, one with a castor so a teacher or student can tilt the desk (much like a wheelbarrow) and wheel into a new position. Within minutes you can switch from individual work, to group work, or whole class activities.
Koskela utilised biophilic design principles, which are based on a connection to nature, to develop the Learn by Koskela range. There are no straight lines or right angles.
The tops – triangle-shaped for the small and trapezium-shaped for the large – feature a generous corner radius. In a classroom setting they can be arranged in countless organic configurations, which drives dynamic thinking and self-led learning.
The select range of finishes also mimic nature. Colours are inspired by the Australian landscape. Birch laminate is also an option for the tops. The overall effect is students are happier and healthier, which speaks for itself!
Yakka translates to work, and the word originates from the Yuggera Aboriginal language in Brisbane.
Koskela furniture can be delivered anywhere in the world and shipping will be calculated when you place an order.
Koskela has an in-house Project & Product team who will manage your delivery; providing Estimated time of Departure (ETD) updates and working with an organisation’s facilities manager or equivalent to ensure the process is as smooth as possible.
For delivery and installation, Koskela uses reusable packaging, which we remove from site to keep using.
In the eastern states and territories of Australia (NSW, ACT, VIC & QLD) the lead time in 8-10 weeks. For all other states and territories, the lead time is 10-12 weeks.
Koskela has a faster lead time than average because our products are made in Australia. If you need products in a hurry, just give us a call and we can see what can be done.
We recognise that the long-term durability of Koskela’s furniture is a critical success factor for your project. Throughout Koskela’s 7-year Warranty, if you do require assistance or maintenance, reach out to us and we can visit site and perform a Maintenance Service.
During the visit, our skilled Maintenance team will ensure you are happy with the installation. If any structural defects become apparent during a Maintenance visit, the team will rectify the issue on the spot, or lodge a job and organise its repair within 30 days.
We will create a Maintenance report for you, which itemises your Koskela furniture and makes recommendations for refurbishments that occur due to wear and tear. Ongoing maintenance will improve and extend the quality use of your furniture.
At the core of Koskela’s enviro conscious policy is our commitment to make high-quality products that last for years and can be repaired if something goes wrong. Our products are designed to be the highest standards of quality and functionality. While we believe our furniture will last as long as possible, if something does go wrong, we are here to help.
All Koskela products are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship under conditions of normal and proper usage for 7 years from the date of purchase—this warranty transfers to whoever owns the product. After this time, if something does go wrong, you can contact Koskela customer service and we’ll let you know if we can fix it for a reasonable cost.
