It was nice to see in Cologne the new design by Peter Opsvik. He is the designer of the famous Tripp Trapp highchair. Years ago I had the honor to meet him in Norway in his wonderful studio full with special chairs that makes you move. Because according to Opsvik, people are not designed to sit still for hours. When he himself became a grandfather he was inspired by new production methods and materials. So he came up with a completely new design: Nomi (with a nod to the word ergonomics). This chair really grows along with the child. With the Baby Relax you create a bouncer at table height. Nomi provides secure support for growing children and freedom of movement when climbing in and out of the chair. You can adjust the seat and foot rest by millimeter to teen age. Beautiful Scandinavian design!

Beautiful designed and so convenient that all these modules can be combined as desired and can be used for a longtime. It’s also ideal if you don’t have large bedrooms. For removable bassinet there is a standard, but you can place the bassinet on the bedstead. From the bedstead you can make a small ‘house’, the changing table fits on the crib standard but also on the bed and dresser. When your child grows just turn the changing table and place it on the cradle stand and voilĂ : a small desk!

The underlayer is made of canvas and can be attached easily with loops to the box. Relax baby!
