  • Children are little explorers with big ideas and various needs. Our little loved ones love to jump, crawl, hide, play, cradle dolls, draw and sometimes two or more at the same time. Their main business is to play and learn by doing so.

    The Child’s Chair offers just the tool to the young explorers to utilize their potential and develop their motorical skills while at play. Not only is it colorful and ?exible in use, it is also made out of strong molded plywood making it almost impossible to break.

    The adjustable slots offer endless possibilities for work and play – the seat can be adjusted to make a high or low chair or can be completely taken out so that the child can rock in it or crawl through it. If the smaller plate is added, the youngest have a little multipurpose table for eating, drawing or playing.

    The Child’s Chair places no boundaries to imagination and fits perfectly with the child’s day-to-day life.

    So what are we waiting for? Let's work and play!
    Kristian VedelKristian Solmer Vedel (1923 – 2003) graduated from the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and Industrial Design and continued to lecture at the same institution. After having been professor at University of Nairobi 1968-72 he returned to Denmark and became part of the Scandinavian Design movement.

    Influenced by Kaare Klint and the German Bauhaus school, his classically modern designs are characterized by a creative use of materials, especially plastics and wood, and with a strong sense for ergonomic and functional requirements. A typical example is his children's furniture, which could be adapted to a growing child and turned over to be used as a toy. In all respects, the furniture was designed for children according to their particular needs, rather than just being a miniature version of adult furniture.

    In an interview, Kristian Vedel stated his position as follows: The starting point for an architect's work must always be that he, from his own point of view, and as objectively as possible, takes a position with regard to what he perceives as the needs of society and his fellow man; he must personally take a stand with regards to existing possibilities and responsibilities.

    Among many other awards, Kristian Vedel received the silver medal at La Triennale di Milano for children's furniture (1957), a gold medal at La Triennale di Milano for his line of stackable melamine dishes and containers and the Lunning Prize (1962).
