Researcher’s File #1: Satoshi Muraki x Universitas Sebelas Maret, Indonesia

Researcher’s File seeks to share the findings of research conducted in the form of international joint research projects undertaken by the Faculty of Design at Kyushu University.
The first installment of researcher’s “Ergonomic design of furniture for elementary school children” that was undertaken by Professor Satoshi Muraki of the Faculty of Design in collaboration with Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) in Indonesia.

Desks and chairs used in the classrooms of elementary schools in Indonesia are heavy and are difficult for younger students to carry on their own. The aim of this international joint research project is to identify the requirements that make desks and chairs suitable for children and to propose designs that meet these requirements.
