The Scoop High Chair, designed by British firm Seymourpowell, brings design to the table--from a toddler's position. Looking rather like the customer throne from a hair salon, the Scoop's rounded surfaces leave no place for dirt to accumulate and can be height-adjusted, from sofa to table height, by means of a foot pedal that drives the pneumatic lift.
Unlike its brethren barber shop chair, the Scoop isn't mounted to the floor; the round base conceals castors, so it can be wheeled out of the way for cleaning. And the adjustable integrated table acts something like the safety bars on an amusement park ride, keeping the child in place and obviating the need for a harness. When it's time for the kid to come out, the table can be slid forward for easier access.
