Tripp Trapp is the people's favorite in "Design in 100"!

Aftenposten, one of the main Newspapers in Norway announced that there has been a tremendous response to their design competition. They launched their competition with a special issue of their weekly Magazine, “A-magasiet” which focused on Norwegian design.

A jury had picked what they considered being the 100 best designs from the last 100 years. Based on this a shortlist of 30 was presented and the newspaper asked the Norwegians to vote for their favorite “design” among these 30.
Over 100,000 readers have voted for their favorite and the winner, with over twice as many votes as the runner up, was Peter Opsvik and his iconic Tripp Trapp chair.

Peter Opsvik, in his brief comments underscored the positive and good relationship with the Stokke team, thanking them for their great efforts for this achievement. He also mentioned Kåre Stokke particularly, thanking him for believing in the concept from day one.

The leader of the jury said that a Tripp Trapp is a product you never throw away! This is very gratifying to hear as giving my products longevity has been a very important aspect for me, says Peter. My hope has always been that the Tripp Trapp should make sitting at the table more enjoyable and improve interaction between children and adults. The voting shows that many appreciate this quality.
