I absolutely love these sorts of projects. There’s something utterly beautiful about being able to shift your perspective to what it was like being a small child:
Peter Opsvik designed the adjustable Tripp Trapp chair after watching his son, Thor — too big for a high chair but too small for an adult chair — struggle for a place at the family dining table; as part of the design process he produced oversize versions of the Tripp Trapp and a standard table and chair to help his team empathize with an average three-year-old child. More than seven million Tripp Trapp chairs have since been sold.
