This year marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic Tripp Trapp® chair. Designed in Norway by Peter Opsvik, and launched in 1972, millions of children around the world have since enjoyed a seat at the table.
Though times have changed, the mystery of being a new parent hasn’t. By sitting together at the table with their families, children have been able to learn, develop and connect with the people that care about them most. It’s this connection that allows parent and child to get close, communicate and figure it out together.
To celebrate the milestone of the chair that grows with the child, Stokke is proud to offer a truly exceptional, limited edition anniversary collection.
Quality craftsmanship lies in precision and detailing. In this spirit, Stokke has put a great deal of extra thought into our Limited Edition Ash chairs to make something memorable. Lending to the exclusivity of the chair, each Tripp Trapp® chair will have its own number, like a piece of art, as well as a laser engraved anniversary logo.
Chosen for its high quality and rich look, the densely veined wood of the ash tree reveals multi-dimensional rings in both pale and deep tones. This swirled marble effect creates a unique pattern for each chair, ensuring that every chair is a limited edition and one-of-a-kind. Almost as unique as the child sitting in it.
Founded in Ålesund Norway in 1932, Stokke began life as a manufacturer of high-quality furniture. The first product for children was launched in 1972 –the iconic Tripp Trapp® chair, which has sold more than 13 million units and remains a core product in the Stokke collection. Since 2006 Stokke has focused exclusively on designing premium children ́s furniture and equipment within the highchair, stroller, baby carrier, home textiles and nursery segments. The products promote bonding between parent and child and ensure healthy development for young children. Owned and operated by three generations of the Stokke family until 2014, Stokke was acquired by Belgium based NXMH, wholly owned by NXC in South Korea. Stokke has worldwide distribution in over 70 countries, as well as its own subsidiaries in Europe, the United States and Asia.
