I don't quite know what to think about this. I always wanted Mies Van Der Rohe-designed Barcelona chair, but could barely afford the VITRA scale version. Now Knoll is making them for kids. Jill at Inhabitots says they are green- (GREENGUARD Indoor Air Certified, meaning that they are low or no VOCs, no formaldehyde, and safer for little (and big) lungs.)
And I have been criticized for showing expensive furniture on TreeHugger before, but this kids chair starts at US $3674. Toss in the footstool for another $1737.
At least the Bertoia diamond chair is metal and almost indestructible, and starts at an almost reasonable $530.
