Sugikoujou Company was established in Ukiha City, Fukuoka Prefecture in 1886. It began by manufacturing school desks, chairs, exercise equipment, and playground equipment, and its current leading products are study desks. Because Sugikoujou wants you to use these desks for a long time, they refer to them not as “study desks,” but as “desks,” using the English pronunciation.

FAMILIA
Various concerns and contradictions were identified through repeated dialog with various people ranging from teachers, students, and caregivers to the on-site staff and sales staff at Sugikoujou. This birthed the furniture series concept “Familia,” furniture specialized for but not limited to learning activities that can be used by everyone in the family.

DRAWER TRAY
The Familia series values the freedom of use by all, as opposed to use by only a certain individual. The DrawerTray is based on the same concept. Not only can it be used in the CabinetDesk, but when placed on the wide flat panel, the drawers can be pulled open from either side. Furthermore, the drawers can become trays and be removed and transferred to a desired location. The idea for this product arose from the tool shelves roughly made with timber offcuts in the factory. This form was created with the minimum addition required. Highly functional, the simple shape in which the structure itself is the design is expressed in the DrawerTray in steel and solid wood. It has the appearance of the vaulting boxes once created by Sugikoujou.
