2020 saw a huge rise in the business-people and school children working from home, and the also the challenges that come with this. Scenes of people working from their beds, or sharing the same kitchen table, to the odd embarrassing Zoom call with strangers walking in the background of the meeting, are all something we can now relate to.
We all now recognize that everyone needs a suitable quiet workspace in order to be able to do their job or studies effectively. Something that is there when you want it, but packs away when you don’t. Something that makes up quickly, looks stylish, is cost effective, and preferably has little, or no environmental impact. And this is where Pack-A-Desk was conceived.
Using a unique structural design and utilizing advanced manufacturing and glueing techniques the Pack-A-Desk engineers have created a product using 100% card that is strong, hard wearing, light, collapsible and 100% recyclable. Designed to take the rigors of daily work or school life, including the odd accident (it has a wipe clean surface), your only real problem is choosing the colour.

Across the UK over 1.3 million children are claiming free school meals, including 200,000 children that have had to skip meals during lockdown (200,000 children according to Food Foundation estimates).
The Pack-A-Desk team realized that making donations of free desks to local schools was, whilst rewarding, just a drop in the ocean, and that something more significant on a larger scale needed to be done.
