EverDesk – drawn from the past for the future imagination to grow
Home is more than a sanctuary. It is an expression of one’s taste and personality. Creating a designated area for children to play and study outside their bedrooms has long been an issue for design-conscious parents. Parents want to be with their children, but not with unbefitting furniture ruining their carefully curated interior. EverDesk is the elegant solution to this problem. Designed to replace the “kids” corner” so commonly seen in dining rooms, living rooms and kitchens. It fits perfectly in every room and every kind of interior. Whatever the style – contemporary, minimalist, traditional, rustic, shabby chic, mid-century modern, Hollywood glam, French country or Scandinavian – EverDesk fits in.
EverDesk is the outcome of eight years of painstaking experimentation, working with different designs and different furniture designers. The end result is a thoroughly thought-out desk. In fact, hundreds of drawings were made by the draftsman before arriving at the final design. The effort was worth it. EverDesk enjoys perfectly ergonomic rounded pieces, is higher, for better contact between parent and child, has grooves on the seat and footrest to avoid slipping on smooth surfaces, and has a big drawer for more storage. But in a nod to tradition, the wooden threaded screw mechanism to adjust the seat height was left as it always has been, wood.
EverDesk is made using European sessile oak from FSC ® certified forests, which means it’s 100% sustainable, as every tree is replanted. The building of the desk itself involves 31 master craftsmen working on 166 separate pieces. A process that takes twelve weeks and combines the very latest technology with the skilled hands of many craftsmen. Although we use advanced technology, the craftsmen always lead the process and the machines are simply an extension of their skilled hands.
As children grow taller, their arms and legs naturally get longer, so any traditional desk must be replaced. Replacing desks by cutting down more trees is not a sustainable way of thinking and certainly not in line with our philosophy. That is why we have designed EverDesk with eight adjustable height settings, four desktop settings and seven-foot support settings. It grows as a child grows.
EverDesk is a one-size-fits-all, multi-purpose desk suitable for children from 3 to 13. Designed to provide smart supportive ergonomics, EverDesk does not require any tools to make adjustments thanks to an easy-to-use mechanical adjustment system.
Almost all school desks in the past were made exclusively for right-handed children which made them unsuitable for left-handed kids who have different arm support needs. Therefore, we have designed EverDesk to accommodate “lefties” as well, by making the desktop “reversible’ and thus providing them with proper desk ergonomics.
The desk is protected by high-quality Italian lacquer that is child safe. It is also stain and scratch-resistant, but that’s not to say it won’t get scratches or stains. As the EverDesk founder, Eszter Papp says: “Every stain and scratch tells a story, bringing back a beautiful memory”.
With its archetype shape, EverDesk is a stylish kids’ corner that parents can fit seamlessly into any room in their home. While paying homage to the classic children’s desk of yesteryear, it has been thoughtfully tweaked to modern-day standards with sleeker lines and new functional elements to provide countless memories to today’s generation. And even the next.
