Trissen children’s toadstool & table


Nanna Ditzel designed her Trissen or “Toadstool” tables in 1962 and has said they were inspired by the restlessness of children: “Children never sit still for two minutes, they get up, stand on the chair and subsequently it tips over.”
To accommodate that, the toadstool chair can be rolled, placed on either end or stacked; it can also be used as either a stool or a table.

Reminiscent of an oversized cotton reel, these beautiful tables add instant warmth and wit to any modern child’s interior.

These work brilliantly as bedside tables for children or as nursery tables, next to modernist wooden rockers.

Available in a variety of sizes as stools or tables, in oak, beech, ash and smoked ash and many different colours.

Originally produced in Oregon pine by Kold’s Savværk, Kerteminde
