Maartje Steenkamp’s Children’s Highchair had me look and then laugh! It’s a HighChair that is meant to shrink as the child grows. It comes with a hand saw and a set of instructions, and you are supposed to cut the legs off periodically as your child grows. What a concept! Ha! Uhm… What about a potential second/third child?
Can you imagine the warning labels this would have if it was manufactured in the US?
WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REDUCE LEG SIZE WITH HANDSAW WHILE CHILD IS SEATED IN CHAIR. DOING SO MAY RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH.
Oh, litigious America. Designers can never have any fun…

Let’s hope people saw them off evenly and the chair ends up level!

OMG, I really must have one for myself. How much fun it would be to work from so high. Is that wrong?
