Hokus Pokus

Posted in Colours, textures & surfaces, Products & furniture, Vintage furniture by zigideluxe on 31/03/2011

Here another fine example of a vintage kids furniture piece I recently bought. Named Hokus Pokus, this multifunctional furniture was manufactured in Sweden by AB Bjärnum Möbelfabriker. All in one, it is a high chair that becomes a rocking chair with steering wheel or a desk with seat, depending on how you flip it around. Every aspect and form has a purely functional ‘raison d’être’ which gives the object its visual complexity and its overall shape. This uncompromising and honest approach linking form and function makes this unusual object in my view very interesting.

    I am desperate to purchase a Hokus Pokus chair. Can you help?
    My parents owned one in the 80’s, my sisters & I all used it. Of course my parents unwittingly passed it on to others & we can not trace it’s whereabouts. Ours was yellow plastic with brown vinyl seat.
    Many thanks
