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 found this versatile piece of kids furniture in a vintage shop. It consists of a bench, desk with seat and storage facility. Convincingly basic and low-tech its shape results purely from the functions it serves. Manufactured by a brazilian company called Estrela.
