From children's stool to versatile school furniture - Xbrick®
The lightweight children’s stool can easily adapt to what is needed in the here and now. For example, more than just a seat, the children’s stool becomes a versatile piece of school furniture for indoors and outdoors in no time at all. Learning needs space. Sometimes free space, sometimes clearly structured rooms, sometimes completely new rooms. The equipment and furnishing of learning rooms has a decisive effect on our mood. And thus also on our learning success. We need learning rooms in which we can communicate, interact with each other and move towards each other. And for this we need a new type of school furniture.

Xbrick is stackable, light and mobile, simply used as a stool or as a modular element for indoor and outdoor use - all applications in one video!
This is what our partner companies and users say about the
Child stool for agile work:
"The pupils can take the required Xbricks and boards out of the container and set up their individual classroom in a suitable place, somewhere on the school grounds. Arrangements for frontal teaching as well as for group work are possible. It is also possible to change between the teaching methods fluently. The whiteboards can either be attached to objects such as trees, fences or the like with suitable straps, as a classic blackboard, or, placed on several Xbricks, form a group table. This table can then be described directly and the former tabletop serves as a poster with the results of the group work in the next step. The students* of the Lise-Meitner-Gymnasium are very happy about the variety and highly motivated to build their individual classroom. We are ready for the next, certainly hot, summer!
"Optimised learning rooms meet certain pedagogical requirements. [...] Here, I consider the criterion of appropriateness to the requirements to be decisive, as it contains the adaptivity and the stimulation potential in a certain way. The criterion of requirements fairness pursues the goal of fit. This means both the fit to the learner and the different forms of learning and the fit to the content being taught. In order to make this possible, it is necessary that a learning environment is flexible and adaptive and yet has a clear structure".
"We were surprised how quickly and actively the concept was accepted and entered our company DNA virtually overnight: Already on the second working day, the teams had captured their respective areas, created their own configurations within their zones, placed tables differently or completely aside. Of course, we hoped that the concept would be accepted so quickly and without fear of contact, but we did not expect it to be accepted so quickly or in this form. With the furniture [...] we can live in the real world exactly what we want to achieve virtually with our employee apps: dynamic internal communication that is popular with all employees."
The magazine is our answer to the call for more spatial flexibility in the learning environment. Our versatile school furniture can be quickly and easily transformed into highly variable learning landscapes and settings. This enables group work as well as presentations, creating retreats or inviting informal exchange.
Xbrick® - more than just a stool
The children’s stool or also multifunctional stool, light and stable, seating or standing aid, quickly converted into a pedestal or used as a table, Xbrick configures rooms again and again in new and different ways. Intuitive, almost noiseless and in no time at all.
Xbrick® stimulates interaction and communication. Its users are always on the move, whether in the office, at home, in the trades or at places of learning from daycare to university, whether indoors or outdoors.
A flexible companion, X-fold applicable, just a best buddy.
Xbrick is made of pure expanded polypropylene (EPP). We deliberately chose this 100% recyclable material because it is what makes Xbrick so special and has many functional and ecological advantages.
The Xbrick is produced in Southern Germany, assembly and dispatch are carried out by employees of the Remstal Werkstätten der Diakonie Stetten e. V., a recognised workshop for disabled people. As a partner of the C2C Lab, we are committed to transparent supply chains and a consistent circular economy. At the end of a long product life, we take back used Xbrick and ensure that it can be reused or returned to the material cycle (100% recyclable). Xbricks can be used x-times, not only in the application, but also in this sense.
