In a surprising turn of events, students around the world might soon be crediting their dog for actually helping them complete their homework, instead of using man’s best friend as a scapegoat. But that assumes that every student has access to this adorable dog desk designed by Philippe Starck.

Made from moulded polyethylene plastic and available in five different colours, the pooch is happy to be used inside or out while it balances a flat workdesk atop its head. As far as ergonomics go it’s probably not going to score a lot of points, but if it gets kids happily doing their homework, it’s hard to argue with the effectiveness of its design.
