Project Description

MyChair is a fully functional, light, and portable chair-desk that doubles as a back-pack, and is aimed towards students aged 7-18 from rural communities without proper seating infrastructure. With MyChair, students can pursue attentive learning in environments which were not previously conducive to learning, both in their schools and homes.

MyChair received a $10,000 Social Impact prize
