The Tripp Trapp Chair

The Stokke Tripp Trapp is the bestselling children’s chair in the world, with well over 9 million chairs sold since 1972.

It removes the need for dangling legs and bad posture and bringing your child up to the correct level for any table. It improves early learning of social skills by letting your child watch and repeat actions around the dining table, as well as giving your child the best ergonomic start in life. Tripp Trapp is the chair that grows with your child.

This product is for everybody: from 6 months of age right up to adulthood. The high back, front rail and strap of theBaby Set convert the Tripp Trapp into the best high chair you can get. As the child grows, you take the baby set away and keep on adjusting the chair. Children will keep on using the chair with the footrest up to the age of about 11 or 12. After this, take the children’s seat plate away and use the footrest as the seat instead for a comfortable adult chair.

The designer, Peter Opsvik, came up with the idea when he noticed that his son Thor had no chair that could position him at the correct height at the family dinner table and enable him to participate with the rest of the family. He then developed a chair that was adjustable and changed with the size of his son as he grew bigger.

The producer is Norwegian furniture manufacturer Stokke AS (Ltd.) located in Ålesund, Møre og Romsdal County. The county is well-known for their good quality furniture production since the early 1900’s.
