Taxi Seat by Camilla Akersveen

It is often the most mundane things that inspire us. Norwegian designer Camilla Akersveen spent much of her childhood being driven around in her grandfather’s taxi, unable to keep her hands off his beaded seat cover, which she found fascinating. Fast forward a few years and the design graduate has just exhibited her taxi chair at the Stockholm Furniture Fair, which has met with widespread acclaim and is set to become a future classic.

‘I wanted to create a chair which could be used by all members of the family. Focusing on play and the development of children’s senses, I chose to look back and find inspiration in my own childhood’, she says.

Kitsch, beady, knobbly, part abacus and part yellow cab, it is as fun for kids as it is for grown-ups. Fingers crossed it makes its way to London sometime soon.
