Year: 2013

The school at Spartochori village used to be the only school on Meganisi Iisland, therefore the teachers that taught there played a significant role in peoples’ lives. Now that this school has closed down, relatives of two extremely beloved teachers decided to offer an object in the memory of these people.

The character of the object has to be multifaceted, combining function with learning and playing. Thus the proposed object is a bench integrating to its design characteristic school elements. Since the school building is not functioning as such any more, the neighboring playground area has been deemed to be the ideal place to host the ‘memorial’ object given its play character.
