Digitalization of education like MOOC helps everyone to consume different knowledge anywhere. However, learning is more than just consumption. People need a physical tool to interact with others and produce knowledge.

FUN-ITURE is stackable furniture for the people to curate any public space into different size of classrooms. The basic unit is a chair-height furniture frame that is easy to carry around. It is composed of a minimized steel frame to structurally support assembly system, wood table top, and other replaceable parts. The assembly of it reaches the height of the table by stacking two of the basic units and further becomes stairs and auditoriums by further arrangements. This lets people customize the learning space based on their own needs.

FUN-ITURE promotes the spontaneous activity of learning. Anyone can simply start with arranging a stool or desk for watching a TED video. Then another one may connect another unit to start a conversation. A group of people can join and create a discussion with the auditorium-like arrangement. Later the units can be redistributed into smaller groups to write, draw, and photograph different forms of knowledge. It is the pure fun of creating one’s own space that motivates people to go beyond digital education.
