πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ JUNIOR product collection launch

A letter from me, the designer.

Summary

Hi everyone,

We have decided to launch a JUNIOR product collection , beyond Desk and Chair!

We want to give kids the right tools to learn in this new dynamic educational context that often shifts between studying at school and homeworking. Let’s face it, lockdowns have taught us that studying at the kitchen table, or in the living room while parents are watching TV isn’t ideal for kids to focus. We want to build the best smart learning space for our younger generation,

Just a quick introduction, I’m @ha.nguyen and I’m handling the industrial design part of Junior range. My plus one is @Nancy who will be in charge of sourcing high quality learning tools for kids.

You will hear a lot from us in the next weeks as we are launching the SmartDesk Junior and ErgoChair Junior very soon. We want to keep you updated with the behind-the-scene of how this all comes to life, as we plan to add accessories and tools for kids along the way. We would love to hear your thoughts during the process!

Speak soon!

Cheers,

Ha

If you’re here, you’ve found our new Junior collection. It’s in stealth release for now with 2 main products, while we continue R&D.

Long story short… we need your input.

  1. What’s next for version 2? Need new feature ideas.

  2. More accessories for Junior! What should we do?

  3. [Vote needed] Cute pen(cil) holders.

Let me know what you think in the comment below. Cheers!

Congrats @ha.nguyen! Super excited for this. Seeing the components around our office feels really hype! Not a good photo but better than nothing lol

So the mockups have been inconsistent on this. Does this desk have a tilt portion or not? it’s a fairly common feature on the competion for their desks to either tilt entirely or have a tiltable portion for drawing.

I understand your concern. The mockup reflects the final version of the SmartDesk Junior. However, we received feedback about people/parents wanting to have multiple choices for the tops, so we’re releasing the first version with the normal desk top first. The second version, which will be released later will have everything the mockup showed :slight_smile:

Weird. When I go to the junior site, the ErgoChair Jr. isn’t listed. But it’s accessible when I clicked on the link above. Are you making changes to the product or something?

@kimbrb: Hi, thanks for letting us know! Can you give us the link to the page that didn’t list the ErgoChair Jr.? I will check with the dev team.

I can’t seem to post a link, maybe because I’m a new member. It’s the autonomous.ai/junior/ site. However I checked and it’s back again :smiley: So glad to receive such a quick response from you. Keep up the good work!

Ok the DRAWER portion I would LOVE to have as an accessory for the normal adult desk.

I feel like the colors of the chairs should match the desk though, so that’s a bit off. Either that, or just offer a color on the chair that is easy to keep clean.
