Cute Canine Escritoires

The Chien Savant Desk is a Loyal Servant to Children's Studies

— April 18, 2013 — Art & Design
For the many kids around the world who do not particularly enjoy homework, the Chien Savant Desk attempts to make the chore a little bit more appealing. Designed to function as a kid-friendly and compact study carrel, this object would ideally charm children into sitting down with their workbooks.

The endearing Philippe Starck product appears to have been molded from some sort of strong polymer material to take the form of an upward-facing dog. Its rear legs are bent, its front ones are straight, its nose is held high and its tail, erect. The stable footing is capable of supporting the additional weight of a small person. Sitting on the back of the Chien Savant Desk, young students benefit from a flat writing surface on the head, as well as the support of backrest tail.
Trend Themes
1. Kid-friendly Study Carrels - Opportunity for creating more engaging and appealing study spaces for children.
2. Designing Functional Furniture for Children - Innovation in creating furniture that is not only practical but also visually appealing to children.
3. Using Animal-inspired Designs in Children's Products - Exploration of incorporating animal-inspired designs to attract children's attention and make learning more fun.
Industry Implications

2. Educational Products - Disruptive innovation opportunity lies in creating educational products that make learning more enjoyable and engaging for children.
3. Interior Design for Children's Spaces - Innovation in designing study spaces and rooms for children that inspire creativity and motivate learning.
